How long ago did you check? I've been using OpenSSL on windows for many
years. Actually, it was supported just fine on Windows back when it was
added to PostgreSQL *at least*.
I didn't say *available for download*, I said *ship with*. That is, does a Windows Vista Pro box from the factory come with OpenSSL on it? It does come with Microsoft SSPI, although I don't know compatibility issues.

No, of course not. Microsoft OSes don't ship with *any* third party
software. So yeah, didn't get what you meant, and you do have a point
there. Provided the SSPI stuff actually does gssapi encryption - but
I'll trust the people who say it does. I've only ever used the
authentication parts myself.

I think it's largely irrelevant though - I can't see us shipping a non-ssl enabled build now (thats not to say we wouldn't add SSPI support of course).
