Win32 developpers are numerous, but that includes RAD users, while we
need RAD implementors.

So the good ones that are willing to work on open implementations
(freeware/open source/pd) strangely are more rare on win32 than Linux.

This might become more important in the future. The main problem is a
central figure that does a lot of the work. Recently Micha Nelissen started
working seriously on win32/Lazarus, and it improved a lot in a few weeks.

Apparently not :_)
