Sorry, mIRC is not available for the Operating System on your handheld. mIRC is written for standard PC's with a standard MS Windows and it will work on all versions 3.1, 95, 98, NT, ME and 2000, and compatible versions. mIRC does not work on WinCE, PalmOS or Epoc.

Linux, Mac's, Atari's or the C64

We regret to have no version for Linux, Mac's, Atari's or the C64 either, but we have no plans to make a mIRC version for these and other systems in the future. We do not have the money to develop mIRC for environments like the Palm or iPAQ. Sorry, there is tooo little time and toooo much to do...

I know a mIRC for Linux would be great but we simply dont have the time to make such a version and we dont see the proper conditions to let other people do the job. But, mIRC runs without modification on Linux with Wine. Wine is a freeware implementation of the Windows API for Unix platforms. User reports state that mIRC will run on Wine very well. See http://www.winehq.com.

For Mac's there is a good IRC client written by Onno R. Tijdgat, called Ircle. You can find its Homepage at http://www.ircle.com/. Also for WinCE, WebTV, Linux and other systems there are other IRC programs available, all perfectly compatible with mIRC.
