Is it even possible for folks running Windows to use the "Blessed API"
as required -or- are they completely locked out of the development
cycle all together, sans Mac hardware ownership?

I no longer on a Mac (sad to say) but have also never found a Windows
version of the "Blessed SDK" to be downloaded from Apple should I even
want to try.

If that is the case, the new development license is even worse,
requiring a hardware purchase in order to have the ability to create
software for any of their products.

Inquiring minds would like to know... ;-)
