Why on earth the moaning and groaning??

This is a huge amount of work done unpaid in someone's spare time. This is brilliant.

There are some great benefits to this release:

1. Non-native apps can now be hosted on OS4

2. Porting of X apps to OS4 is now possible (for example Mozilla) while the UI is ported to the native GUI toolset.

I say GREAT JOB CygnusEd and we look forward to more good stuff in the future.
