    I read your fine article:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/64bit/russel_virtualmachine.mspx
    and List is precisely what I want to run. I emailed Vern and he replied that
    he is not ever planning on building a Win32 console version. I gather that
    List is mostly written in assembly and would have to almost totally rewritten.
    Bummer.

    Thanks,
    Lynn

  6. Yup, I emailed Vern as well, and got the same answer. So I built a little
    Win98 VM and I use it whenever I want use List. (I had forgotten about LIST
    over the years, and you're original query a year ago reminded me of how
    useful it is.)
