this is in fact a mailing list for discussing the future development
of latex; please don't fill it with queries such as this: the usenet
group comp.text.tex is a far better place for non-latex discussion.

in answer to your question -- win32 is the name of the interface;
'doze nt offers rather more functionality than either 95 or 98, but
both miktex and fptex will work under all three `operating systems'.
