How to install thin, rack and eventmachine on Windows/Cygwin

There's no official Windows binary release of eventmachine for the latest version of thin (1.0.0). Thin needs at least version (0.12.2) of eventmachine, so you'll have to use the latest GitHub code (currently 0.12.3) to install thin on Windblows and CygWin:

git clone git://
cd eventmachine
rake gem
gem install pkg/eventmachine-0.12.3.gem
gem install thin rack
