Could someone give a brief update on the windows version status? 

It's obvious that things are currently only moving on the Unix front,
but is Windows given up completely? Thing is, even though I'm
definitely no fan of Windows, the computer classrooms that I can use
is equipped with Windows machines. If I'm lucky, maybe NT... I need to
make a decision rather soon on whether I can use R in our course in
basic stats for medical PhD students next autumn. Also, of  course,
the students will be using Windows95 on their own computers (maybe
with the occasional Mac once in a while).

I don't mind putting in a bit of my own elbow grease to make it work
(famous last words, I know...) but I'd need a push in the right
general direction. I glimpsed through the source dated May 6 from the
distribution directory, but I couldn't really make heads or tails of
it. What compiler, how to make, etc.?
