"Stable Windows version" or "released soon". Choose one.
The Windows version is hampered by a lack of Windows developers. Most
of the Windows development is being done by people who use Linux or
MacOSX as their main platform and occasionaly build and test on
Windows as a favour to Windows users.
It's also hampered by a tendency for developers to try to "paper over"
Windows problems with quick hacks rather than getting to the root of
the problem and developing robust solutions.
Ultimately, a *stable* Windows version probably means a stable version
of 7.0. In 6.x, the Windows version will inevitably be a "best effort"
