It's quite possible in theory, but there are a lot of things to check
on: Bucardo has not been tested on Windows yet, but it may make more
sense anyway to have Bucardo live on the Linux side and simply have the
Windows boxes kick off the sync when they connect. The tables involved
must all have a primary key. It must be a relatively recent version of
Postgres, and there are some Perl modules required on the server side,
but nothing too exotic. Let me know if you have further questions,
sounds like an interesting project.
