Perhaps. Perhaps not. It is additional work, certainly, to make a program 
function properly under multiple operating systems. Windows 2000 could be 
considered to be the current version of Windows NT. Its cost is trivial 
compared to the cost of DXP.

If Protel software is to run under multiple systems, and if it were a 
matter of choice, I think I'd rather see the effort go into Linux instead 
of NT.

On the other hand, perhaps there could be good reasons for staying with NT 
instead of upgrading to W2000. However, a good place to discuss that, 
particularly if one wants a response from Altium staff, would be the DXP 
list. Altium people do read this list (techserv) but they, up to and 
including the top officials, have responded far more frequently on the DXP 
list.
