The new version of Cornell's CU-SeeMe for Windows is indeed a Win32
application. OS/2 is technically very good, but due to its small market
share, Cornell will not be making an OS/2 version of CU-SeeMe. UNIX, even
with its many variants, still has a modest user base when compared to
Windows or Mac. With limited funds/time, CU chose to focus on the two
popular microcomputer operating systems; and for which there is a wide
variety of multimedia hardware.

Look for an announcement next week on how to get the new Windows version.
