There are also elements which are not available on windows. I went down the
same path as my dev env are on windows, had quite few days digging and
pounding my fists against the desk and eventually switched to Ubuntu which
is a lot simpler. Unless we are serious about supporting windows and put
some efforts including careful selecting dependent Ruby gems, we will have
people continue wanting run or develop on windows and having issues. Just
my 2 cents. Thanks.

I don't have any specific knowledge of setting deltacloud-core on
Windows. The specific issue you run into is that the installation of
thin requires a C compiler - you might want to try and install the
cygwin tools (gcc, binutiles etc.) and then try to get thin going again.
The web site for thin[1] might have more info
