  That's why the Sword Project is developing a Windows client. You will note 
that the BibleTime and GnomeSword projects are seperate from the main Sword 
Project. It's also worth pointing out something else - just because we 
(desktop Linux users) are in the minority, does that mean we shouldn't have 
Bible software?
  Since the Sword Project is doing a terrific job with the Windows client and 
the BibleTime and GnomeSword teams are doing a great job with their clients, 
it seems to me there is no reason to choose only one platform.
