This is really a configuration problem, not a windows problem.  I have been 
using Mosaic for Windows for a few months.  It reqired only a few minutes to 
set up and has run without flaw on my machine.  I don't think the software 
needs a re-write. I think that the configuration on that poster's machine had 
just not been set correctly.
