You are right, the symlinks are already in the .tar.xz packages.  It
seems that we already lost some functionality from teTeX.  It would be
nicer to create symlinks when format files are created.  This sounds
more intuitive to me and is very helpful if you create your own format
files.  Please note that "texconfig init" creates symlinks for all
platforms.  Maybe Norbert could add this functionality to tlmgr as a
higher level interface to fmtutil.  Of course, it's too late for
TL-2014 but maybe worth to be considered for the future.

Really?  I can, even without Windows.  Nobody needs Windows.

  $ wine /usr/local/texlive/2014/bin/win32/pdfcsplain.exe --version
  pdfTeX 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.15 (TeX Live 2014/W32TeX)

Petr, I suppose that it's what you expect.  Right?

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