We already use Psql on Linux via ODBC as a "big compatible MS Access RDBMS", with appropriate functions and operators (great!!).
I think that a Win version of Postgres could easily replace this MS product for professional usages, and I can test it to do that.
Many Win developers could receive benefits, could approach the OS world and Postgres could become more used than MySQL... (thank God!)
I renew my aid as beta tester for a Win32 version, when it will be placed on the CVS repository, as already posted.
Let me know...
