I use Linux, and do 'make install', which puts everything into
/usr/local. I have changed permissions on /usr/local so that I don't
need to be root to put things there.

I found Windows to be too painful for any kind of software
development, so I use it only if I need to release software, or
investigate bugs that only occur on Windows (at which times it is
still painful).
