There was an old half-working port of Asterisk to Cygwin which does run
on Windows. It has not worked since at least 1.6.0 . Feel free to try to
fix it. I suspect it won't be easy. Patches would be welcomed, I guess
(look at what odd fixes that were accepted to make Asterisk build and
work on OS/X).

And for others: the name is [MS-]Windows. Not 'wind-blows" or whatever
name you find for it. Please respect this list. If you don't have
anything useful to add to the thread, please refrain from replying.
