Well, you might be interested to know that we've been working hard to
get the *best language in the world* to work on our target platform,
Win64. In fact, the last testsuite I ran has it down to just 2 or
three distinct errors, depending on how you count. A year or two ago,
we couldn't even run the front end without it segfaulting. This makes
GCC a big competitor to Absoft for targetting 64-bit windows, and Kai
is the prime mover on that front.
