I think that "volunteer to care" was the crucial phrase with focus on the
word 'care'. Now perhaps I read it the wrong way and I apologise if I did
but Andreas has been very anti-Windows in the past. Perhaps the word
'ignorant' is slighty harsh. I still feel there is a lot of anti-Windows
feeling and whilst I don't prefer the platform I feel it should be well
supported. Perhaps Enfold could help with Zope Windows builds as they have
done with Plone Windows builds which are fantastic? I have occasionally
attempted to install separate Zope instances on Windows and have achieved
that but obviously installers are the ultimate for exposure.
