I for one vote for win32 users having their own list as soon as 
possible. I predict three things:

1) there will be *lots* of them coming to -general (instead of to -novice);
2) there will be a surge of novice-oriented and MySQL-related posts in 
-general;
3) the other members of the -general list will get annoyed enough that 
eventually a win32-users list is set up.

So why go through the pain of #1 and #2 when we can go directly to #3 :-)

Btw, here's a nice read as well as a reminder of things to come:
