  Just thought people might be interested to know that the latest version
of R-win now runs under Wine, the windows emulator for Linux (ver.
20001202).  (I originally tried this a couple of releases back because a
student seemed to be having system-specific problems and I was attempting
to be lazy.)  The recent switch from crtdll to msvcrt seems to have
helped with Wine compatibility.

  I didn't test it extensively: looked at the graphics demos (there were
some missing-font problems) and a few other things.

  (So, if you *really* want a GUI front-end under Linux, this might be one
way to do it ...)
