Have you looked at HDP for Windows?
It is a 1.1-based distro and is designed for easier Windows install. I haven't used it myself.

Subject: which hadoop version to use
I am figuring out which version to use.
Since I would like to develop and debug and test on my windows (eclipse) and deploy to linux.
And also I would like to use a version which has the document, javadoc and examples, not too obsoleted versions.
I have tried 1.0.4:
The problems I found, I am not able to set it up running in eclipse easily.
it looks it takes lots of effort, even rebuilding Hadoop. (this tutorial is for 1.0.1, but it looks similar to 1.0.4)
I have tried 0.22.0
I can set it up on windows, and run via eclipse, but looks it is very obsoleted, I can't find the documentation and javadoc (it is hard).
And even for eclipse, I need to use the old 3.x.x version.
So I am quite puzzled now.
