Subject Re: [general] POLL : supported platforms
Date Mon, 16 Oct 2006 20:11:48 GMT
I have Gentoo with gcc 4.1.1 on x86 and x86_64 and I have Windows XP and 
Windows 2003 server on x86.

I also have Windows XP with VS.NET 2005 Community Edition but so far 
experimenting with 100% free toolchaing on windows shows that it requires a 
lot of effort to make even classlib work with IBM VME (last time I did it was 
several months ago so I cannot give a current status),  not to mention 
compiling drlvm on it. It is because of Microsoft secure API initiative, DLL 
manifests and stuff like that in VS.NET 2005. This is probably a subject for 
a separate discussion.
