What's done is done. There's no point arguing my choice of programming platform at this point. If you want it to run on your Falcon (or indeed anything else), look at the serial data that SerialDisk sends (the source code is freely available) and replicate that in your programming language of choice.

Of course, the choice of programming language is entirely up to the developer. I just did not agree that C#/.net is *more* portable than plain C.

For those interested, SerialDisk now supports the following operating systems:

- Windows x64 (Tested on Windows 10)
- Linux x64 (Tested on Ubuntu 19.04)
- Linux ARM32 (Tested on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ with Ubuntu Server 18.04.02 LTS ARMHF)
- Linux ARM64 (Tested on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ with Ubuntu Server 18.04.02 LTS ARM64)

both with and without the .NET Core runtime installed. I'm not planning to release a Windows x86 version any time soon, but I can if there's any demand for it.

Grab it from the SerialDisk site - https://github.com/z80andrew/SerialDisk
