To the best of my knowledge, the software runs only on the Mac. Someone from
BioQUEST will doubtless correct me on this but I have a feeling that much of
it was originally written in Modula-2; I don't know how that interfaced to the 
GUI and how easy it would be to port. I vaguely recollect that earlier 
versions of some of their courseware were in fact done on the PC by the
individuals concerned but these don't seem to have been updated. Of course,
BioQUEST would argue that the philosophy underpinning their products is
totally portable -- doesn't even need a computer:-)
