I am the main author of a libsndfile (a library for reading/writing
audio files like WAV, AIFF etc) written in C and widely used across
all the major platforms.

I have recently switched to doing all my windows builds for libsndfile
on a Debian/Ubuntu box, cross-compiling using these MinGW tools and
running the test suite under Wine (the windows emulator).

For me, this is about 100 times easier than dealing with the pain
that is windows.
