Hi all,

I CC your message to texmacs-dev, since it seems quite interesting.
A collegue of Marc stumbled upon


which might be another idea for providing a Windows port for TeXmacs.
Unfortunately, it seems that this port requires a lot of disk space.
If someone wants to experiment and write a complete installer for TeXmacs...
Maybe it is possible to reduce the distribution to about the size of CygTeXmacs.

I use coLinux and happy with it (andLinux also based on coLinux) but I
think suggesting people to use TeXmacs on Windows via linux is even more
far away, compared to cygwin way...

The most problem with CygTeXmacs, as I see it, is distribution of entire
cygwin with X11, and it could be conflicting with installed cygwin.

As I see at http://wiki.freedesktop.org/wiki/Xming , xming developers
suggest using xming namely for reasons to not bring huge cygwin file
structure everywhere.

Thats interesting. Except that our problem is not only with
the X server, but also with other APIs (e.g., the directory
structure and path syntax is not the same on Windows,
how to test if LaTeX is installed, and also how to call
the usual UNIX utilities doesn't work the same either).
