Subject Re: [general] What platforms do we support?

As I said few times today and before... :)
Yes, it looks like we can make uxtheme.dll an optional dependency for
AWT module. I hope that will be enough to support W2K.

And yes, I agree that we need to add this modification to our pre
JavaOne issue list.

I also believe that we definitely need Linux support.

SY, Alexey
