[Geany] Geany as Windoze noob's learning tool

Why is it so inconvient to use the @Drive trick?  If you check out the 
windows paths, they're all specified starting with a drive letter.  
Linux paths start with root . . .

For this to work, I (or someone else picking up Geany Portable) would 
have to distribute MinGW with Geany Portable.  And I haven't been able 
to get MinGW to work even installed as a regular system application for 
quite some time.

In my experience compiling something with MinGW on windows rarely ends 
well, if it ends at all!
