Don't take it for granted, by definition Windows platform is not 
favorable to open-source development and most open source communities I 
know develop for it as a secondary objective, not primary.

Since you found some initiatives, maybe it's your role now to carry one 
of them up to your standards. I don't really support the "it doesn't 
fit, just throw" approach, even if you can't give time you probably can 
take time to raise issues, make a detailed report of things etc. and be 
generally more constructive than just take your free stuff and go away.
