In the spirit of Open Source it doesn't make any sense that a closed source
compiler is used.

This means that the script available to compile the Windows version,
requires you to either use the limited free version from Microsoft or to buy
a the full version from them...

Currently MinGW-W64 is capable of compiling 32 and 64bit binaries... If the
compiler is not up to the task maybe the developers could also contribute to
that project...

I know that traditionally the Open Source community despises Windows users,
but probably in numbers they are the largest proportion of OOo (and in the
future LO) users

Regarding the runtimes, to be honest, I just don't like that I have to close
all programs that use the same runtimes in order to be able to install a new
one. And after having closed all programs the runtimes are not even updated
because I already have the latest version...
