OSNews, Generic OSes After MacOSX and Linux start to become viable alternatives to Windows on the desktop, more and more applications are developed to be cross- platform; all potential users can run them on their platform of choice. In the following article I will discuss different ways of creating a cross-platform application and their (dis)advantages for the user.

Runtime Revolution to the Rescue

The Runtime Revolution tool is a decendant of Apple HyperCard, it is very easy to use and it can cross-compile for Windows, Mac Classic, Mac OS X (Universal), Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris and HP-UX (the odd unices just for old RunRev version, not the current one). You can buy a license and develop on one platform and deploy native applications on any.

I think any developer that is faced with multiOS needs should really look into this tool. And today they ship a version compatible with Vista.
