It looks like the official one with the installer.

I admit I didn't try to install Drupal on XP.
My interest in PostgreSQL this time was a quick&dirty reporting tool
and I wasn't that willing to see which other packages was going to
install other than Drupal.

I've no personal interest in Drupal on Windows currently... but
still that lower the bar of a lot of people willing to try Drupal on
Windows quite a bit.

Actually the overall installation process of the things I needed was
painless but I didn't try to install Drupal on XP.
If installing Drupal with that bundle is going to be as easy as what
I tried, that package is really going to be a good tool to promote
Drupal... with all the consequences a Drupal/PostgreSQL installation
may imply on a larger scale.
