some time has passed and I did only receive minimal feedback, both pro
and cons. Therefore I will put a last call:

If I don't receive feedback on a successful native compile (not Cygwin
or MinGW) on at least Windows Vista (Windows 7 would be better) with
some usable driver (perhaps serial/USB) until March, 22nd 2010 I will
apply the patch removing win32 support. If someone manages to compile
LCDd, I am happy to test it using Vista.
