Windows should be safe. We use it. The Windows port is pretty close to the 
Linux port. The Mac port started after wxwidgets 2.4.2 was realeased as 
stable. The are coding against CVS HEAD. This basically means wx 2.5 is the 
first really usable version on Macs. Once wx 2.6 is out all platforms should 
be have the same codebase but it will take some time before the major 
distributions will ship it. Not to mention all the existing deployments (2.4 
mostly). To make a long story short. We won't have a stable Mac version until 
2.6 is released. This means Mac users will have to hack 2.5 specific code 
which may conflict with 2.4 code.

No. See above
