Since landspeed was using cygwin i thought it was reasonable to  
suggest linux. if its not an option, then cm and portmidi and  
midishare all work on xp, or at least they should.  cm and most of  
the package should work with either clisp or sbcl on xp. really its  
more a matter of cffi than the os.

as for clm, its a bit tricker because instruments require a c  
compiler and a reasonable shell environment to configure and call it.  
im not sure about the availablity of either of those on xp. im not  
saying that they arent there, just that i dont know. if they are  
there, then its simply a matter of someone that has access and  
interest doing a bit of work. thats the great advantage of free  
software and a community of folk with intersecting interests.
