Loren claimed that that yasm works with any compiler of any x86 platform 
and I countered with a x86 platform that is currently supported and sold 
(as EcomStation, ecomstation.com), installs on modern hardware with a 
bit of picking and choosing components that yasm does not work with.
Same with compilers, yasm does not work with the OS/2 port of GCC and 
perhaps OpenWatcom, the other Free open source compiler which is 
available on most x86 platforms. Further research shows that OpenWatcom 
does use OMF on DOSish systems but the linker can handle coff so yasm 
would work with OpenWatcom, at least on Windows.
