first of: I only know and work with the code of the gtk2.0 client and this
only with googles help and some try and error ...
Some friends told me, that they do know and play freeciv - I was surprised!
They use the win32 client of version 2.1.x. I don't know the users of freeciv
but if there is a big userbase for this client we should think carefull about
removing it. Is it possible to use the two maintained clients on windows?
