Win32 needs open source repository
Being both a win32 and linux user, I can attest that nothing exists out there for windows users to find good quality code to study, learn from, and use. Most of the MFC code I've ever looked at was from linux programmers who also ported their programs to windows.
If you've ever browsed winfiles, or any of the other shareware repositories, it's almost sickening to see how capitolistic their sites are. There are always links to "Buy THIS!" and "Register THIS!", etc. If freshmeat were to offer publicity for windows open-source projects, it would 1. help further the movement of getting open source further onto windows, 2. help students and others learn how to program easier, just as they already do on GPL'd platforms, and 3. keep up the habit of showing company X that open source is a growing movement, and that the user community would really appreciate for them to open up some of their specs/code. Once it's open for windows, it's not hard to get it working (after some porting) on un*x.
