Right now, Wing is running on top of the BSD interface of OS X, with a ported XFree (XDarwin) and standard out-of-the-box Gtk. Which means it should run on the other BSDs and Solaris without too much effort. Maybe HP-UX/AIX too. Maybe the Linux port of Wing could be generalized into a Unix/POSIX port. There isn't that much Linux-specific code. Not sure if there is much demand for a generic Unix port, but there seem to be a few people interested in OS X :) The only problem I see is in building extension modules for various platforms, including the license manager which includes a binary-only module for which there is no distributed source.
