Big Fat Mistake: nothing relevant mentioned on that page. IOW, nobody will
find it, and that's a problem since a vendor *needs* to search for such
information since he certainly will not know your URL by heart ;)

Some important missing keywords/topics: "porting", "MFC", "Visual Basic",
"Unix", "win32", "api", "toolkit".
Those omissions alone would account for a > 50% internet search failure rate,
I'm sure ;)

BTW, big thanks for all your Linux Desktop-centric efforts!
