There is a perfectly usable Windows version 1.4.0, but this has the same 
export capability of the Linux 1.4.0.

You will still face this potential instability problem even if you could 
find 1.5 for Windows (don't know of any availability right now).

I think the advice you were given was the best -- do your work in 1.4.0, 
then when you get ready to export to PDF/X-1a, open the file in 1.5 and 
export. Don't do any editing in 1.5, only in 1.4.0.

If you switch back and forth from Linux and Windows, the biggest problem 
you might have would be fonts which are on one system and not the other.
