  Wow I rattled that one off fast; hitting the 'O' key twice instead of 
the 'P' . . .  :)

Here we go again: all sorts of unknowns are coming to the surface re RunRev:

1. RunRev IDE for Windows does not run under WINE

(Woops; before I get all domatic about the inevitable number 2 I'd 
better see if I can
get a Windows standalone to function in WINE; turning on the Ubu-Box and 
here we go . . . )

2. WOW! I got a (albeit crude, basic stack) Windows exe standalone, 
built on Ubuntu 10.04 beta something
     to run under WINE. Although all the colours were inverted.

3. Now somebody with some jazzier computers than mine had better try the 
same tests with VMware,
     CrossOver, CrossDresser and all the rest. [Trick Question; which of 
those last 3 methods of emulation
     is not an emulator?]

I am beginning to think that RunRev's REAL shortcoming is not that it 
cannot do this and that on some
OS or another, but that it is suffering from serious UNDER-DOCUMENTATION.

Adequate Documentation will require a whole lot of work and a whole lot 
of testing.
