Light Copy Editing complete

I did a little work on several sections, just minor spelling and grammar fixes.

Points of further interest:

  • Added template call to DraftPage. You can remove it whenever you like.
  • Section 1.4, "versions and problems in compiler and linker", needs work. Regrettably, I am not sure enough of the information to rearrange it with any degree of confidence. It needs to be in several paragraphs, with possibly some short bullet lists.

Question: do you intend this page as a replacement for the current "Building on Windows", or a supplement to it?

Let me know when you want to add this to the TOC (with a "(draft)" note?) --TJ 01:45, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

Answer to TJ

I do not want this page to substitute the Windows build guide. MinGW port is a technical alternative to Microsoft Visual C++ but it is not intended to be a complete substitute.

This wasn't entirely clear to me. Add some words? --TJ 10:14, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

So the build guide for MinGW should be a supplement to Windows build guide.

As to Section 1.4, I would like to have more comments from experts.
