I completely understand your position and I'm pleased you've taken on
RPCEmu. I just thought it was better to state my desire for a
Windows version so you knew people were interested on running it
for that platform. I was fairly sure you wouldn't deliberately
be doing things to make it linux only, but I would have kicked
myself if 6 months from now there was an announcement about RPCEmu
becoming linux only and I'd kept quiet.
With the announcement of RISC OS 4 for a fiver, it looks like
I may be able to do some testing sooner than I thought.
Thanks again for taking up this project.
P.S. Has anyone created a makefile to build RPCEmu on Cygwin.
If so I'd love to have a look at and would see if I could get
it working and added to the RPCEmu development.
Imagine a life without walls.  See the possibilities.
