What exactly are the problems with NT?
Is it also faster or more stable on other Win-Versions?

I can't get it going, neither with Win nor with Linux.
I fetched the GTk+ DLLs for Windows from the Internet, but it still asks
for other more DLLs.
Okay, it's not that important to me, so I forget it for now and start

How can I at least get a white background?
(I do mean white - not lightgray!)

Can I change the name of the window?
Can I get it to start up in Text-Mode?
