Hi, I wouldn't care avout portability that much. First it's necessary to get it work on Windows. It's the majority platform.

I hope RT will spend their time on something else, where the community really has no chance to do something.

That's true. Such a step should be synced with RT.

From this point, I think we need more /Pro scripts. -- Robert M. Münch Management & IT Freelancer Mobile: +49 (177) 245 2802
