I think that IBM specifies a subset of the Windows API which
if you only use that to construct your Windows programs,
then it is quite possible to adapt or recompile that program
as a native OS/2 application.

I think, too, that the European Common Market countries have
also established (or have asked MicroSoft to allow to have
established) a subset of the Windows API as an International
Standard, so that if a developer writes strictly to this
standard, it will be easily portable and maintainable, or
something like that.  I doubt that this is exactly in
MicroSoft's corporate interest.

But, with a little forethought, perhaps a Euphoria for
Windows can be implemented which is readily convertible to
other operating environments.
