Do you know where Xorg can run. Do you think why microsoft still adding
support for Winforms on .net std. We can just focus on .net std thing. What
will they achive by doing that? Simple all things that can be ported will
be available. Same goes for SDL why do you want to have SDL library in your
as answer is simple you want programs with SDL dependency. But I get my
answer but I want to let you guys know one last thing by asking you one
simple question? Why windows have subsystem for unix? If someone could have
said something like that that would be M$. All I asked about where we can
discuss and I got NO as straightforward answer so it is totally out of
question it seems. Well good luck to you guys I am leaving,
There is a lot more relevant that I could quote, but that would make a big mess.
Xorg has been ported to non-Unix systems, including OS/2. I imagine there is
now very little interest in that area, since OS/2 has faded into obscurity.
OS/2 has had updates in the form of eComStation and ArcaOS (arcanoae.com), but
these are still 32-bit, no 64-bit, and no GPT support, and not really going
anywhere, of interest mainly to people who need to use old OS/2 applications.
OS/2, eComSTation, and ArcaOS have fallen far behind Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD,
and Haiku in hardware and general application support.
I visited www.winehq.org , and can't find anything about porting to non-Unix
systems. I see where it would be nice to have interoperability between Haiku
and MS-Windows applications, if it were feasible.
