HMG (Harbour compiler+MiniGUI library+MingW compiler) distribution will still exist as 'one package' integrated GUI development tool for Windows. It serves to a very specific purpose and is very useful in such way for lots of people.

Roberto.

Yes. I second Roberto.
East or West HMG is the Best.
South or North HMG is worth.
...the possibilities are endless.
