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 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.
