If it were easy the Windows version would not have been dropped;-)
I still use old non-portable Windows versions but don't expect any
kind of support, including bug fixes. Eventually Windows will change
in a way that breaks it, but there are ways around that. I run Lotus
1-2-3 Version 5 for Windows 3.1 in DOSBox on Linux and in XP
elsewhere;-) But it does not do everything Gnumeric does -- just the
things I have been using if for for twenty-some years.
