- For USB based cables: Any Linux, FreeBSD or MacOS X variant that
support libusb-1.0 should be supported. Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X
have been explicitly tested. For backward compatibility with older releases
of OpenCBM, currently, also libusb-0.1 is supported. Note that this support
will be dropped in some future version of OpenCBM.
- For parallel port based cables:
Linux 5.x, 4.x, 3.x and 2.6 variants, FreeBSD 11.x and newer. Linux 2.0, 2.2 and
2.4 might still work, but have not been tested for ages. For Linux,
i386 and AMD64 architectures are supported.
- For parallel port based as well as USB based cables:
Windows NT 4.0, 2000, XP and Server 2003, Vista, 7 and 8. For USB based
cables, NT 4.0 is not supported, though.

additionally, 64 bit Windows ("x64", "x86_64") versions are supported.
Itanium-based Windows ("iA64") are
