Oh yeah, if you are interested in Unixes and Cygwin in relation to  
the Fusion SDK, you will probably not get it to work on Solaris with  
GCC less than 3.4 and probably not on Cygwin either. The problem here  
is that the SDK supplies multi-byte character support through (the  
standard) class wstring which is not supported for Gcc on Solaris  
before version 3.4 and which was not supported on Cygwin last time I  
had a look (some months ago).
