    All over it.

    A lot of work. Yes.

        In last three days:
          ~ Downloaded SWT, wxWindows, win32 generics (John's work),
            GTK source, Swing source, Safari (apple web core), and
            stepped through control library of Gecko via LXR.

          ~ Installed Eclipse CDT for Win32, Linux, Symbian, PalmOS,
            installed XCode 1.5 for OS X.
          ~ Built "Hello, World!" windowing applications for GDI,
            Carbon, Nokia's four separate Symbian SDKs, and PalmOS.
          ~ Reading through Boost.Build ./kernel/ in order to create
            a "bundle" rule for Carbon.

    Learning quite a bit. Trying to share it.
