So you consider anything that has parts that need to be installed into/under a web server as 
not windows compatible?

Anything that wants to install pdf/html documentation? Manual Pages?

Anything that needs configuration files which usually end up under /etc 

Anything that requires a spool file (/var/spool normally)?

I am really just curious. How is this stuff solved under windows?
