I am making an routing web application similar to Google Maps 'Get Direction' feature. But because of the limited control and data on GMaps, I decided to use OpenStreetMap instead. This also made me install PostGIS-PostgreSQl database, added routing functionality using pgRouting and now, I'm planning to use a Geoserver. All of these are done in Ubuntu Linux 9.04. My problem is I have difficulty using Linux and I'm more comfortable with Windows. As much as possible, I want to use Windows, but some of the things that I need are tested only in Linux (like osm2pgrouting, which I need to import OSM data to my database). Is there a way I can make this project in Windows? I mean a way I can implement the project using Windows, to avoid using Linux? Thank you in advance!
