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.
