Well, there are two routes I can go (or both, if I ever have the time!):
Learning to use cygwin, and/or learning to use Visual Studio-- both of which are
Greek to me at the moment, sad to say. (I've never 'compiled' anything-- very
embarrassing.) But I *have* been trying to familiarize myself with what both of
those tools do, per your suggestion :-) I've recognized for a long time that I
need to 'bite the bullet' and learn how to write and compile at least *small*
programs (on Windows)--to get my feet wet, so to speak, and to banish that
daunting feeling of "Oh, that looks to be SO hard." Of course, that's the way I
felt when I first came across POV-Ray-- which now seems easy and natural!

Practice, practice, practice...
