This is fantastic - my only gripe is, as a 100% Linux user, I'd love to have native versions of these tools and if there is a way to understand why the dependency on Windows, I'd sure like to know .. other than that, great! Downloading it now and will do what I can to get it working in WINE ..

Why not implement it but leave it as a config option in the menu somewhere so that those of us who will help you with testing it can turn it on/off/configure it as needed during the process of getting it right? I'm tracking all your daily SVN changes where I can, and if you do this work I'll see if ...

This is great news and it points out another interesting angle of the Oric, and its dependence on Entropy as a functional part of the core system .. ;)

On the "old programs getting lost" subject, I remember back in the day I used to have a "Utilities" Tape for my Oric-1, which had a bunch of general-purpose programming/hacking utils for the Oric .. there was something on there th...
