knotwork [Clients] Typo fix

 Because the [[Open Transactions]] test GUI client, [[Moneychanger]],​ is also written in Java and we would like that too to have an installer for Microsoft Windows platforms, revisting the old Galactic Milieu Play By eMail client seemed apropos, and a new version of it has been placed online at the above URL. Not much has changed with it, but because repositories use names like com.digitalis.galacticmilieu.client to find Java artifacts and projects it seemed time to start working out where exactly to place various projects within our Java workspaces and source repositories. Because the [[Open Transactions]] test GUI client, [[Moneychanger]],​ is also written in Java and we would like that too to have an installer for Microsoft Windows platforms, revisting the old Galactic Milieu Play By eMail client seemed apropos, and a new version of it has been placed online at the above URL.

-The PBeM client is still rather primitive, but by playing around with Eclipse and Netbeans it seems possible it and [[Moneychanger]] might be able to teach each other something and possible ​even eventually come together into a larger richer client platform. Basically at this point the PBeM client is not really for actually playing the Milieu through but, rather, is a test client, a step on the road to deploying rich clients written in Java.+The PBeM client is still rather primitive, but by playing around with Eclipse and Netbeans it seems possible it and [[Moneychanger]] might be able to teach each other something and possibly ​even eventually come together into a larger richer client platform.

 One thing that it is teaching us is that Java is not necessarily platform-independent at all; the SWT widgets system is specific to windowing-system,​ operating system and hardware-platform. That means we have to find some way to make sure each user uses the correct widget jars for their particular situation, which seems to thoroughly undermine Java's much-vaunted "​platform independence"​. One thing that it is teaching us is that Java is not necessarily platform-independent at all; the SWT widgets system is specific to windowing-system,​ operating system and hardware-platform.
