'MinGW' (ie. gcc, the various binutils) is a Fedora native
application.  It doesn't run on Windows, assuming that's what you
meant.

Richard,

Sorry I misread what MinGW could do, I was under the impression that it was similar to the what could be done in the link below:

http://www.pendrivelinux.com/2007/03/26/portable-qemu-persistent-ubuntu-linux/

Portable Qemu Persistent Linux image on a U3 device, that allows users to run Fedora within windows as an application. This will allow more users to experience the joys of Fedora without having to install it on the machine or in instances where they can not install it on a machine.  With the advent of U3 devices exceeding 8gb in size it could allow for a customized version of Fedora to be installed that can be tailored to that users wants/needs.  It would have the benefit of being more useful than the live-cd/dvd as it can be updated and retains it updates/settings.

Sorry for the confusion.

V/R
