I can't answer for Linux but Windows should "just work" for all your
Magyar word processing needs with no special setup. 98/ME/NT/2K/XP
all come with "Central European" fonts. You may have to install
some extras to use Hungarian on a machine only used for English
before. Email me if you have any problems.
