Apparently, according to http://www.andlinux.org/ andLinux which that 
link to Xastir requires, only works on 32-bit Windows platforms.  There 
are those of us that have already graduated to 64 bit Windows and won't 
look back.  And, no, I'm not going to fire up a 32 bit XP penalty box 
under 64 bit Windows to run a coLinux-based andLinux just to fire up an 
APRS client.  Yes, I CAN do that, but I'd really rather run a native 
client.  There wasn't one, so I'm building one and welcoming others' 
input to help me make it better.

not too convoluted or difficult)
