When will CPAN.pm just work?
CPAN.pm out of a Linux box is just sux! Actually even in the Linux box is not easy to use, since it still need to much configurations steps.
CPAN.pm is a very important tool, and really need to be fixed, or maybe rewrited! The dependencies bug at CPAN-Testers is still a big problem and no one is doing something to fix it!
Who has CPAN working think that it's perfect, and it is. But is very common to not be able to configure easy the CPAN, specially due the FTP problem, and some modules CPAN is just not able to find the distribution.
