Yes...to use SignWriter 5.0 you will need either Windows or the Macintosh
operating systems, or any other operating system that supports Java. But
that is not a problem since the majority of the computers in the world use
an operating system that supports Java. It really is a world standard.
The minimum requirements are:
A Java Runtime compatible with Java version 1.1 or later.
We had talked about supplying Java Runtime with SignWriter 5.0., when we
distribute it, and we can still do that with permission from the Java
developers. But that is becoming increasingly unnecessary, since Java is
automatically available on the world's major operating systems.
