Phil, as you know I'm not a Windows user (except at work).  Most
Windows users use MikTeX (I had been told).  I don't know anything
about MikTeX but I assume that you tried it.  Can you explain briefly
why you prefer TeXLive over MikTeX?  Many MikTeX users I know never
tried TeXLive and I don't know anyone who is using TeXLive on Windows
but has experience with MikTeX too.  I'm quite interested to know what
people like/dislike in MikTeX/TeXLive.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
