no, OSX ofcoz...i probably could get os7.5 stuff working since i got plenty of 
working example code for that :=P

i've been compiling the same posix code that i use on linux and on cygwin.... 
compiles fine, but doesnt work :=P however, the guy who was testing it uses 
some usb=>serial thing aswell so it *may* be that its a bug on this side of 
things. (thats why i want working example code so he can test exactly that)
