Aaaahhhh my young inverted conical-headed elf, indeed fb is cross-platform:

It compiles on both Motorola 68x and PPC processors.

And if it expects to exist, it will someday have to compile in a UNIX 
environment.

Neither have I.

Here in the states if you want to find a Wendy's restaurant, just 
look for the closest McDonald's.

Wendy's will be next door.

Wait, you say, they're fierce competitors!

Absolutely correct.

And that's exactly why there next door to each other.

FB should be next door to RB and across the street from VB.

Hey, we usually charge corporate customers a $100,000 to explain that.

You just got it for free...

...for what that's worth.
