Yeah, and the summit of Mount Everest is 'available' to those that climb 
it, but few can. Few are prepared to suffer the pain and hardship to 
actually achieve it.

"Available" does not always mean "achievable", no matter how you Trolls 
try and spin it.

FwBuilder *is* available for Windows, but you must purchase a license.
Unless you have the money and pay the fee, FwBuilder will forever be 
beyond your reach, unless you run Linux.

Getting the idea yet ?

Actually, this is only your opinion, and if you ever grow a brain, you 
may look in the mirror one day and see an idiot.

Then and only then will you be able to learn anything and move forward.

You need to get your facts straight. I last *had Windows on my PC* in 
August of 1997 when I switched to Linux full time. I have not used 
Windows on my workstation since.

However I have had the unpleasant experience of using XP for around 12 
months while working for an embedded manufacturer around 5 years ago.

I have never seen Vista, and like the majority of computer users, have no 
desire to ever see it.

Your claims of 'available' are simply misleading as shown above.

Even if you succeed in running a Linux application under Windows, you're 
still stuck with Windows and all the limitations of that platform.

Windows ... which Linux application would you like to *try* and run 
today ?

If we wish to reduce our ignorance, there are people we will
indeed listen to.  Trolls are not among those people, as trolls, more or
less by definition, *promote* ignorance.
