My impression is that you are not really interested in solving the 
problem of installing tl/perl under windows, but to agitate, how simple 
linux world is :) Well, I don't say it is not elegant and powerfull, but 
if one is familiar with programming, *everything* becomes easy under 
windows too, unless one compares cmd with sh. IE why don't you learn 
JScript -- windows built-in, huge programming language? Because it is 
not a part of your intrests, and its ok, in exactly the same way, why 
normal people don't want to learn talking with black'n'white machine via
