Actually, we do.  Between dosAPRS and Xastir, we have MSDOS,
FreeBSD, Solaris, MacOSX, Solaris, Linux, and Windows covered
thoroughly with zoomable maps, range-scale, and even "pretty maps".

I'd call that a fairly cross-platform coverage of the available
systems!

We also have MGRS and UTM in Xastir, for military and SAR-folks.  I
happen to use UTM quite a bit.
