Actually, I have a Pentium and 486 running Windows 3.11 on my desk, along
with an NT machine. I spent last weekend in Arizona playing with OS/2. I
won't mince words with you, I'm just passing on what I heard (somewhere)
about the effort of getting audio running across all (or even most)
Intel-based machines. If you're up to it, volunteer your time to the
CU-SeeMe team. I know they've used volunteer-written code before, and the
worst they can say is "no".
