I could not see a specific "supports" section on their site - I a
assuming they do not support MS Windows (for execute or server modes).

Are there any windows or multiplatform (as I would describe condor
albeit in clipped form on many) cluster/queue managers

I am interested purely from a comparison point of view and whether
there are any obvious areas where taking  some idea/feature from it
would improve condor's multi platform behaviour...
