[Bioperl-l] Installing bioperl with Strawberry

I got a new Windows box and was going to install Bioperl.

Questions: has anyone had experience, positive or negative, with using
Strawberry Perl + Bioperl? I was thinking of going the Strawberry route
because they claim it acts more like UNIX Perl, which would be nice. But
if SP doesn't work with Bioperl, or is just generally horrible, I don't
want to install it.

SP claims it supports PPM, but I don't know whether I should use that or
the CPAN bioperl install.

Any thoughts?
