Hi, Douglas. You could write "XXX runs under Windows and in the Unix
environment", I suppose. I think if you use "in", you have to fit
"environment" in the sentance; you run IN and ENVIRONMENT but UNDER Unix,
Windows, etc.

My colleague has posed the following questions, for which I have no
authoritative answer:

In the sentence, "XXX runs in the Windows environment and under UNIX,"
is there any difference in usage between "in" and "under"? Could these
be swapped without affecting the meaning of the sentence?
