I would say that not supporting those who have an inability to read
documentation would count as "inferior Windows support." :-)

What I'm hearing here is that all we really need to do to "compete" with
MySQL on Windows is to make the UI a bit slicker. So what's the problem
with someone building, for each release, a set of appropriate binaries, and
someone making a slick install program that will install postgres,
install parts of cygwin if necessary, and set up postgres as a service?
