There's lots of open source and free software that runs on Windows, so
there's nothing fundamentally incompatible about the two.  However, I
am personally Windows-free at the moment and don't have a lot of
motivation to port Mailman to Windows on my own.  Two ways to change
could be for someone to contribute changes required to run under
Windows, or to fund a porting effort.
