I have been on a Windows machine without python and perl, no C-compiler 
or CYGWin and an IIS webserver, crying a lot. Working my behind of on 
AJAX, WMS servers and clients, Google Maps, Google Earth and postGIS 
datasets. :-D
Since I am currently not able to find the time to get a linux machine 
running, I am stuck in the shadows ;-)

About osm2pgsql,  I run the plaxo GIS group which contains a link shared 
with the members to download your osm2pgsql_latest.exe.

So if you seen any hits comming in from 
http://pulse.plaxo.com/pulse/events/filter/group/141734817667, it is 
because of me...

And of course, feel free to join!
