> making language tools in windows is actually quite challenging due to the poor quality of tools.

This is why the tutorial doesn't use Windows. It would mostly be a tutorial about fighting to get tools installed instead of actually talking about building compilers. The total Haskell source comes out to about 500 lines of code for the whole compiler, the equivalent C would be an order of magnitude larger. It makes no sense to do what you suggest.
