However the MCL development environment is still better than ACL/PC's, so I
would prefer to be able to develop on MCL and emulate that on ACL/PC.
Additionally the powerpc market may be even be more attractive than windows
in the future.
Another alternative for constructing Windows applications is to
develop on LispWorks (on a UNIX System), then use Harlequin's
PC-Transducer to generate a Windows application automatically.
