You have to know Inno. I took care for the Windows builds for a while
and it was a large pain to get it started. I'm not a natural windows
hacker, although I was developing on windows some years ago and know my
way around. Additionally the whole cludge (was/is) very fragile so that
new releases pretty reliably required tweaking the build environment.

As Tim said one day: You need to work/develop on windows on a daily
basis to be able to cut releases for it.

I'd second this for any platform actually.
