      I can't see why you'd say 'Open2300 expects to run in a linux like
      environment".
      I successfully run the Windows/DOS Open2300 binaries from Kenneth's website,
      under WindowsXP/DOS from a PHP script.

      If you want to do some code development, on Windows OR Linux, the Eclipse
      IDE with C++ plugin is excellent, but Eclipse is a bit of a steep learning
      curve.
      Otherwise a GGC compiler run on the command line will do.

      Ken.
