-        <para>A: No, GnuCash is not developed on (or for) Windows.</para>
-        <para>If you must run GnuCash from a Windows machine, your best bet is to use VNC to run GnuCash remotely from a UNIX server.  Another possibility would be to install VMWare (www.vmware.com) on your windows machine and run a copy of Linux within VMWare.  We don't have many (any?) windows developers, so nobody is really working hard on a port to windows....</para>
+        <para>A: Yes. Starting with release 2.2.0, GnuCash is also available on Windows.</para>
+        <para>Other related options would be colinux, VMWare and a windows-based X-server hosting a remote GnuCash session.</para>
