SID should build and run OK under the cygwin environment
(http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin/) on Windows. I confess I have not tried
it. However, you will have to build it yourself as there are no pre-built
binaries for Windows. This is not normally a problem to do - there have been
posts on the SID mailing lists
(http://sources.redhat.com/ml/sid/2002-q3/msg00093.html) confirming that
this has been done successfully.

However, looking at your earlier question, it's not entirely clear to me
what you are trying to achieve

Are you:

1) Trying to simulate the operation of the serial port on an xscale
processor using a software simulator/emulator and wish to use a
scheduler-based OS to get blocking serial port I/O?
2) Implying that you have a hardware platform based on xscale on which you
need to run a scheduler-based OS to get blocking serial port I/O?
3) Something else?

If it's (1) then you can use SID, as Gary Thomas pointed out, although I
imagine there would be quite a lot of work involved in setting up a suitable
simulated hardware environment for xscale.
If it's (2), then xscale is already supported in eCos - pick the most
appropriate platform.
