Hi, maybe in future it might be ported to some other operating systems. But I don't have that much time myself to make those ports. Specifications and ACBF Viewer are both free so anyone can use the code to make ports to other operating systems. I don't own any Mac computer and though I own a Andriod tablet making port for Android may take some time (user interface must be rewritten for Android), so if anyone wants to port it to Android just go ahead.
There's still a lot of work on ACBF Viewer for linux to fully support specifications. Other than linux I have biult an executable for Windows 32-bit, which I only tested under Windows XP. I don't have any other Windows versions to test it on or make builds for. So any help is welcome.

Well, I don't have the skills, but porting something from Linux to Mac is
not that hard now, what with the POSIX underpinings of Mac. I will pass
this along to a friend.

I'm sorry about my other question - looking more at the specs I have a
better sense of what would be involved.
