I have a similar sitruation...  When I'm using "standard" modules that are 
in either ActiveState's PPM repository, or Randy Kobe's repository, working 
on Windows isn't that much harder...

I've even done Windows work on modules that include XS code - it's not soooo 
As an upside, they have all these commercial products (Komodo, PDK, etc) 
which are designed for Windows (even if they are ported to Linux, Solaris, 
etc) which make life much easier.
