Nobody in their right mind uses windbg though. Visual Studio is really

I disagree. Windows Pg users are often at bigger companies and don't talk
about PostgreSQL as much. Often for fear of reprisals from other database
vendors they have ongoing relationships with. At least that's been my
experience and I'm sure EDB folks will concur.

Why? I've never seen any sign anybody has used it, ever.
