That's does *not* mean that *no one* runs Zope on Windows. At Enfold
Systems we run several different versions of Zope on Windows on a
daily basis.

It would be more correct to say that no one runs *in development*
versions of Zope on Windows, as opposed to binary builds. That's
mainly because one needs MSVC to compile the extensions and few people
have access to MSVC and knowledge to do that.

And to top it, we have "real world" experience with running Zope on
Windows and using several key components of the Windows platform to
enhance Zope, like Active Directory, NTLM, IFilter, ADO and a couple

I really hope to fix this image that Zope is a second/third-class
citizen when it comes to Windows. That is certainly not the case these
