But I think you will think the same on unix, that is you will prefer 
hg/bzr to git on unix as well.

I don't think someones will prefer hg over git on windows and prefer git 
over hg on unix, frankly. As for which is simpler, I think those 
differences are much more superficial than people want to think, and 
some concepts introduced in hg/bzr for simplicity sake actually harmful 
in the long term (e.g. natural revision number, especially as used in 
bzr). Git UI is not super consistent, but neither is hg as soon as you 
use e.g. named branches and bookmarks.
