Icon is available for just about every platform; Unicon (due to the POSIX support ) is only available for Unix and Windows-NT platforms. The authors' primary development platforms are Linux, Windows-NT and FreeBSD; but occasionally we will build on Solaris and HP-UX as we get access to those systems.
