I've uploaded an Cygwin XFree windows binary for COW to ftp.netrek.org.

It's named
and works identically to the Unix - X release.

The latest CVS release autodetects it and compiles out of the box. For 
compiling a native windows release you need to set the --without-X config 

And you wan't believe it, it's much more stable, faster and works as well 
under Linux. Only sound is not supported, because cygwin lacks ipc shm.

Have fun,
