This is the sort of product that may be suitable for vertical market
apps where each end user pays $3000/per quarter for support maintenance
and upgrades but it is hardly a solution for the average developer.

Apart from that it seems to be a bit of a con; A system that allegedly
produces native linux apps yet they need the mainwin runtime??? Its like
calling the visualbasic runtimes "VB virtual machines!
Never fear Oz-con software enterprises is releasing WinMainliner (tm) it
works just like winmain but with wine renamed to 'winmainliner runtime
and *IT* doesnt need 6 months to port your windows code.
