Don't jump to conclusions on either matter...

Maybe you're just the person to try the freely available SDKs/command-line
compilers from Microsoft and see what impediments, if any, you encounter
and document any workarounds or at least engage the development community
on issues you don't know how to resolve.  Or maybe someone else will do it
and share their experiences.

Nobody has posted httpd binaries for Windows to in quite a
while, and they were never "official" anyway, whatever that means.  Windows
is of course supported in the source, and as someone else pointed out there
are non-ASF providers of binaries for Windows.
