I must say that cygwin did well (there exists good software on windows, i've found one)... as a prototype ... when I look at the postgresql poll (http://www.postgresql.org/survey.php?View=1&SurveyID=11), it seems like I'm not alone !!
Actually, the major problem was the limit of the available allocable memory restricted by cygwin.

We don't plan to wait for the 7.5 win native version of postgresql. It was hard enough to decide moving to linux, I don't want to  rollback everything :)
Thanks for the advice, I will definetely have a look at the new version anyway as soon as it is released.

If you can disable the write ATA write cache, then you have safety.
Unfortunately many cards under Linux show up as SCSI devices, and you
can't access this setting. Does anyone know if the newer SATA cards let
you control this?

You might want to keep and eye on the upcoming native windows port in
7.5 - It will come with a fearsome array of caveats... but you have been
running cygwin in production! - and I am inclined to think the native
port will be more solid than this configuration.
