If an portable implementation of Lisp/Scheme is chosen, I don't
see the problem in using Windows if you like. RScheme is
supposedly extremely portable, but I don't know if that extends
to Windows or not. There is talk of a Mac port at
www.rscheme.org, so you'd think if it worked on a Mac it might
either work, or be made to work on Windows. Portability might get
a bit difficult if a gui ever came into existance though.
