Just a general question about the Unix version of GCG.  Is it posix (sp?)
compliant and will it run under Windows NT on the Alpha workstation?
It seems to me that this would be a great system since the computer
could be put to use as a "general" Windows computer when it is not
being used to run the GCG package (something thats not easy with VMS).
