Your reply suggests that the Linux source distribution
is the important thing. If we get a distributable for Windows,
that's the ball game-- we're on our way to Product!

That's the good news.
The bad news is that if it contains a virus, I am INFINITELY
liable financially, since we don't have a Xanadu corporation.
Marlene and I will probably set one up in May.
In the meantime, if we DO get a Windows distribution,
DON'T SEND IT OUT until you've looked it over VERY
carefully. Indeed, until we have the protection of a corporation.

Thanks and WOW!
