While I'm plugging things, I'll add my bit for STABLE32. It really is
the definitive source for any sort of stability analysis. And, since I
have to mention *nix in every post :-), I have it running reasonably
well on my Linux system using the WINE emulator. There's one annoying
hangup that results in crashes under certain circumstances, and I'm
hoping the Wine guys will be able to resolve it, but until then,
following the Doctor's advice: "Well, don't do that, then" works.
By the way -- Ulrich's analysis program is also very good, and I've used
it under Wine with good results as well. There's one problem with the
Greek characters sometimes getting messed up in the display, but again
that's fairly easy to live with.
