I wonder if there is a way to share parts of the installation between linux
and windows. 
I planned to write something like an GUI-installer for linux using
wxWindows. This would expect that the
appropriate packages are installed  and just check if everything (postgres,
wxWindows etc) is installed and configured correctly. 
We could even download missing packages, but usually this job will be done
better by a package manager (dpgk, yast etc.).
Then the user should be able to choose the type of server installation  and
configure the server and client appropriately.
If some of this would be written in python we could possibly share these
pieces between both OS. But maybe it's easier to build that tool for windows and
linux separately.
