I have been using cygwin and Postgresql on my laptop for experimental
purposes when I am not connected to the server (like in an airport
lobby). And it seems to be working well. Of course I havent had
multiple connections simultanous.
But one problem/inconvience you will encounter is if the W2000 server
goes to sleep/dorment, the postmaster will not wake up or recover. So
you have to manually go into the cygwin directory and erase the
postmaster.pid file. Not a major crisis on my laptop but on a server it
could be very inconvient.
good luck and keep us informed because I am planning on installing
cygwin and postgres on one of my "field servers" where nobody knows how
to maintain a linux server. And when I say "field servers" I am talking
about a tool shed in the Peruvian Andes.
