That's not accurate at all. MinGW is essentially a compiler for
Windows. It doesn't matter if you use MinGW, Visual C++, or any other
compiler for Windows, the result would be the same.

Are we saying then that Git doesn't support Windows? That wouldn't be
wise considering it's one of the most widely used reasons to argue
that Git is not a good choice of a SCM; lack of Windows support.
The truth of the matter is that exit codes are platform-dependent. Period.
