Thank you for this post, I found this actually really insightful. I'm also (relatively) inexperienced, a Windows user, and I have time/motivation for contributing. Your post is very relatable to me. But while you actually tried to compile dmd, I kind of pushed it aside after seeing how much there is involved in setting it up, predicting a big hassle like you describe. I really wish it could be as simple as cloning the repository and running a command on Windows.

hey... I have 25+ years experience as a systems administator.

i.e I'm very, very used to doing very complex things. complex, is my day at the office.

But even I couldn't get my head around how to compile D from source on Windows ;-)

I do have it compling just fine on my freebsd system, and multiple different linux's I use. But Windows? Forget it. Someone will need to explain in detail how that is actually done - I no longer have the patience for working that one out.
