Whatever feelings we may have about Windows, the platform needs to stay 
supported if we want Drupal to thrive in the future.

As http://news.netcraft.com/archives/web_server_survey.html shows, 
Apache declines dramatically in terms of server market share, and 
Microsoft gets stronger and stronger.

As a consequence, I think it is safe to assume that also the number of 
Drupal installations on Windows will be increasing...
