Bush-like weasel words about standalone

I second this, you really need a test machine (as well as one to do  
builds on properly) for all the platforms you are intending to ship  
with. Also if you are aiming at os9 you should also test on an os9  
native machine, just to be sure all things are kosher. I had a  
strange problem with an earlier version of rev with the classic  
build. its a pain, but there is no real substitute to testing on the  
platform that you intend to deploy on. I know thats a pain, but if  
you plan to have folks use your stuff its just the way that you need  
to do things in order to make sure your software functions as you  
designed it and doesn't leave your users blowing in the wind.

I just shipped a cd with win, osx and os9 rev apps with rev and all  
was great with them, in the end there were no platform specific bugs  
that cropped up.

OS9 is still alive and kicking (and will be for some time) in the  
education environment, especially in the K-6 world, where they dont  
get the same level of funding for upgrading as there is in the higher
