It's a nice yet rough way of creating win32 applications using native
SDK calls. The big advantage is that you avoid the whole cygwin layer
and still are able to build native code using gcc-based compiler.
Also, once they got quite handy shell you can build many win32 ports of
other projects (like postgres client library, for instance).
