It's not possible to port MacVim to windows, as MacVim relies heavily
on OS X's APIs.
What do you mean by porting MacVim to windows? What does MacVim do
that gvim for windows doesn't do? If I recall correctly, there's some
gvim option that makes it behave more like a windows app (i.e. ctrl-c/
v/x work etc – which overrides the usual vim keybindings for these
keys (especially annoying for ctrl-v)). Your best bet is probably to
make a list of things you want gvim on windows to do and then aks on
vim_users about how to make gvim do that. It probably can do some of
the things with some options. You could write patches for the rest.

Mac Vim Setup

Hi all and especially Hi Bjorn,
there was a patch on vim_dev that indicates that some work on MacVim
localization is being done. Some remarks:
Vim has its own menu localization system -- depending on the value of
'langmenu', one of the files in $VIMRUNTIME/lang/ is sourced. This
file contains several `:menutrans` commands that provide a translation
of menu items. All of this is currently disabled in MacVim.
If this will be turned on in the future, it'd be great if there was
some way to provide mac-specific translations. For example. 'File' is
'Datei' in German on Windows and Linux, but it's 'Ablage' on the Mac
('Save' is 'Speichern' vs 'Sichern', etc). I don't know if this is an
issue in other languages, but I guess it is.
A simple solution would be to simply add `if has('mac')` lines to the
files in $VIMRUNTIME/lang/ -- but the standard way of doing this
should be documented.
