The windows version of LLVM is not "experimental" at all, it is used by several people building from the Visual Studio 
project files. The windows gcc *front end* is another story, but I think there are many developers like me who use LLVM 
with their own front end. I don't think anyone should be surprised that it's complicated to build anything based on gcc 
(like the LLVM frontend) in a windows environment, but LLVM itself is still very useful without it.
