One of the items on my very long TODO list (see stuff elsewhere about
committers not doing enough reviewing and committing) is to create a
package that can easily be run to set Windows Postgres development
environments for MSVC, Mingw and Cygwin on Amazon, GoGrid etc.
Once I get that done I'll be a lot less sympathetic to "I don't have
access to Windows" pleas.
Windows does run in a VM very well, but if you're going to set it up on
your own VM environment, (e.h. VirtualBox or KVM/qemu) you need your own
legal copy to install there. If you don't already have one, that will
set you back about $140.00 (for w7 Pro) in the USA. Note that that's
significantly better than the situation with OSX, which you can't run at
all except on Apple hardware.
