I can't really estimate how much interested there is in
Aisleriot-on-Windows; the existing installer .exe is gone from the
location linked at http://live.gnome.org/GnomeGames/Windows and
download stats are probably also not available.
Still, there at least seems to be some interest in running Gnome
programmes on Windows; we recently got better installers for the
glib/pango/gtk+/etc platform stack, and a few Gnome apps were ported to
Windows, e.g. Gedit. That's why I though I'd ask if anyone was
interested in keeping Aisleriot/Windows alive :)
