I have tried installing MESA on Windows with cygwin before, but I was not
successful, and I'm not aware of anyone who has been yet (though if any of
you can make it work, the community will owe you one!).

Regarding the Ubuntu problems: those were usually caused by the same few
discrete errors, which Rich has generally been able to fix in the SDK. And
the benefit of using Ubuntu/Mint is that if you run into a problem, chances
are someone else will have it too, so it may get reported and fixed sooner.
I think that these two are the best OS'es to start a student on if they've
never used Unix.
