  Modified:    docs/manual platform.html
  Log:
  little known facts about IA64. 64 bit pointers mean you run out heap twice as fast.

  +We get lots of support calls from Cygwin users. Either it is incredibly
  +popular, or it is trouble. If you do use it, remember that Java is a

  +Cygwin one. This will save us having to mark your bug reports as invalid.
