Actually I know this much- Win32s works perfectly... for what it was
designed for, running Windows NT 3.x 32-bit applications.  There are many
differences between the early NT software and even Windows 95 stuff.

Yes, definetly agree with that, but the subsystem code can't be 32-bit,
unless we want to have it running on top of the Win32s subsystem, which we
don't want. Now that I think about it, Borland C++ which is beyond me might
be the answer.  What does Microsoft use?
