I agree with Neil.
I had a non trivial problem understanding what parts of which versions of Mingw
and/or MSYS I should download to get ghc compiling on windows. I had to try at
least three times before I setup something that works. And I assert that I am a
competent person. I think their web site seriously under-explains things from
an outsider's point of view. But the user base is made up of programmers, so
they obviously are not under pressure to make a clearer site.
