No, unfortunatly I wrote it in MFC and C++, cause I wanted it to be quick
and easy.
I figured it would be mainly for people uncomfortable with the command
line...mainly Windows users. Linux users are overall much more likely
to be able to do the command line stuff. I have absolutly no experience
programming for Linux. It's actually almost done, so I could just finish
it in the next couple days as a temporary solution. That's probably what
I'll do, I already put all the work in, I might as well finish it. Oh,
and thanks for writing the whole rockbox code, it makes my archos actually
