IMO, having a 'toy' server during development on a win9x platform would be really nice. Coming from a MySQL/PHP background, it sure is nice to take the laptop out on a nice day and be able to develop 'real' applications that are then moved to a real server platform.
I just tried the latest NT port binaries, hoping that I could at least start up the server process. Even an extremely limited server on this platform would be welcome. Sometimes you don't get to choose your development OS :(
I have Cygwin installed, but when I try to start postgres.exe I get the following error message:
FATAL 1: SetPgUserName: no entry in host passwd file
I also find no postmaster in the install. So am I just wasting time?
