ADMB-IDE (the combination of ADMB, GCC, GDB, and with Emacs admb-mode) can 
be used on any operating system, but Windows is the only operating system 
where it is tightly bound together in an automated installer.

When we release ADMB in standard package formats for Linux (Debian, 
Gentoo, RPM) and Mac, it will be straightforward to release ADMB-IDE 
installers for Linux and Mac, since the other components (GCC, GDB, Emacs) 
are already in standard package formats. This is how almost all IDE 
software is installed on Linux and Mac.

Until then, it takes some effort and skills to set up ADMB-IDE on Linux 
and Mac. Only brief hints are provided on page 4 of the ADMB-IDE manual. I 
have just created empty pages


where people can share tips on how they set up ADMB-IDE on those
