Now that is not true at all. We have a native Windows installer
(bdist_wininst) and an MSI builder (bdist_msi) that both work
great on Windows.
Plus there are add-ons for other installers such as NSIS and
Please don't forget that setuptools is not distutils, it's just
a package extending distutils. If you find bugs related to Windows,
please file a bug report. If you have specific proposals for
distutils on Windows, you can use the mailing list or send
patches to the tracker.
The ham/egg ratio on the mailing list tends to be very much
on the egg side, so the tracker can help get more attention from
folks doing distutils without setuptools.
