There is no real mode DOZE 32. There is DOZE (16-bit) and 32-bit
applications that run in protected mode which can call on DOZE
(16-bit) services with the help of a server. In DJGPP's case it's a
DPMI server.

We do?

Well, Microsnoft's software is certainly not designed to write
X-Windows programs.

If you use DJGPP it will be easier to port them to Linux compared to
if you use Visual C++++.

Well, in this forum you'd probably be advised to stick with DJGPP...
