   To get them started, have a look at MS4W and Geomoose.  MS4w is a 
Windows friendly install of apache, mapserver, etc.  Geomoose is an easy 
to customize (edit a little XML and a map file) implementation of 
OpenLayers with a great demo web app and integrated with MS4W.

I will try and convince them to start using some kind of Linux, at least for their geospatial needs, but assuming I can’t, what is the easiest way to get them started with web mapping?

But I don’t have time to build a full fledged Leaflet app. Is there something I can install on a Windows machine that will read data from PostGIS and serve it on the web, and allow some level of customization of the interface?
