Actually, the target platform should probably be Windows 98/Me which the
vast majority of home users run.

To tell you the truth, a pure Java client is no longer out of the question.
Considering that any modern day computer will be at least a Celery 600,
a solid, well-written Java netrek client would work quite well.

Hmm.  Running a netrek server on a Java application server would be pretty
funny.  "What?  There's a wait queue?  Throw some more CPU's at it..maybe
it'll scale up the connection pool!"
