Well done, Rod! Over the last five years I have also making quite the 
same point - that if you are serious about scientific software 
development and use a serious programming language like C++ and 
associated tools (like the superb wxWindows class library), then there 
is no excuse for not supporting multiple platforms.

Multiple platform support is also one of the first aims of the FreeDELTA 
that I have been conducting with Denis Ziegler.
