The open source one comes with a nice graphical installer,
I installed it once on a HP notebook running Windows 98
and on a Windows box runnning Windows 2000/SP3.

During ICFP contest I had performance problems, writing out
race tracks (both .trk and .pnm formats) was too slow on my K6-300.
To my surprise the code developed under FreeBSD did not work under Windows 2000,
I can only guess what the reason is, I had no time to investigate yet.
Perhaps some problem with Unix \n vs DOS \r\n translation?
Or a problem with Samba? 

To identify problems, one would need some test suite, is there
an open source one?
