Just as a matter for discussion - what do people think is the best way
to deploy a GNUstep application to Windows users ?

So far I have come up with three options:

1) Try and compile and run the application using the Windows backend for
  GNUstep. This is my least favourite as (to date) I have never managed to
  get a working GNustep installation on Windows.

Have you tried the Windows installer? You can find it here: ftp://ftp.gnustep.org/pub/gnustep/windows/

3) Install Cygwin/X11 onto the Windows machines and compile up a complete
  GNUstep installation on each of them to run the application locally.
  I have only just though of this, and it looks quite appealing....
I have found it much, much easier to compile GNUstep with Mingw (that is, directly to Win32) than to Cygwin. In fact, after two weeks trying I just went back to mingw.

Any sugggestions ? Currently I am trying to be as open minded as possible
about the best solution.
We use GNUstep apps on windows. There's still a lot of room for improvement, specially on multithreading and in the backend, but it's mostly usable. Make sure to apply M.A. Garcias' patches for the backend.
