I believe the current easiest to get up and running TeX/LaTeX solution for Windows is MikTeX. <>

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)
