I believe the current easiest to get up and running TeX/LaTeX solution for Windows is MikTeX. <http://miktex.org/>
I don't know if it comes with the METAFONT utilities for creating a font though. Then again I haven't looked too hard since it has xeLaTeX which means "balls to it, I'm using OpenType!" (And there was much rejoicing, as Computer Modern was replaced by Adobe Garamond Premier
But I digress.

Wow, is that some list. In my era it was a *lot* shorter, by orders of magnitude. The list does include these:
miktex-metafont-base METAFONT base
miktex-metafont-bin-2.9 METAFFONT binaries
miktex-metafont-misc METAFONT misc
(and: logic A font for electronic logic design)
(and what's not to like about: comicsans Use Microsoft Comic Sans font)
