I am looking for a 2D graphics toolkit for a new large project and Cairo is looking promising but one of the requirements I have is that the software runs well on Windows 7 so I would appreciate answers to the following questions:


Does Cairo run as well on Windows as it does on other platforms (i.e. Linux)?

Can I build Cairo on Windows or do I have to wait for GTK or someone else to build the latest version and release the binaries?
Can Cairo be built using Visual Studio 2010 or be built in such a way that the resulting library works well with code built using Visual Studio 2010?
In which Windows contexts/containers/frames can Cairo run such as Win32, MFC or WPF?
Are there any known issues, limitations or "gotchas" related to running Cairo on Windows?
