I don't think the reason is the issue here... perhaps he doesn't have
the money... or the harddrive space to dual boot...or the ability to
modify his current setup...

Any of a million reasons would be sufficient.

I, for one, will just answer his proposition.

I would still suggest trying to run MythTV on cygwin (www.cygwin.com)
which would involve a compile from source.  This, of course, will
require a bit of work...and you may need to patch some files.... but
perhaps myth could become cygwin compatible (if it's not already)

Got a question? http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
