I switched over last week, in order to start using the Mingw64 compiler
in a painless way. The MSYS2 environment can be setup in very little
time, and a GUI installer is available to get started.

The package manager (pacman, ported from Arch Linux) handles installing
the toolchains and their dependencies. The package archives include all
of the optional dependencies for emacs on Windows (image libaries, XML,
GnuTLS etc).
