yes, drivewire 3 provides ready to run binaries for Win and Mac OSX
and a standard C version that can be built on most any *nix type
system. DW4 can run on almost anything, all you need is a JRE and the
RXTX libraries (which have been ported to over 30 platforms).
definitely not a windows centric project :) I think it's likely that
a significant portion (majority?) of CoCo folks are not running on
Windows at all, but that is just based on the people I've had the
pleasure of speaking with in the community.
