The Windows support is planned, but we don't have a definite time
table. Much of the work has been done, although there are still
pieces missing. I believe remote launching is one of those pieces.
The Windows support will be native and will not require Cygwin (which
is part of what is taking us so long -- it's a bit project to move a
UNIX-based code like Open MPI to Windows without sacrificing too much
in maintainability and performance.
Hope this helps,
