  • WinXP Pro SP3 32bit, node 0.6.11 via .msi installer, npm is 1.1.1 (came with the .msi)
  • buster 0.4.5 installed via npm with a few hacks by hand to get it going:
  • alongside buster/: pre-built contextify (ATTENTION: needs some more, not to be used as-is)
  • watch-tree installed via npm into buster/node_modules (used by buster-autotest, missing from deps) - yet this is defunct on Win
    -simple browser tests (html-scaffold only) use the 0.4.5 buster-test.js and buster-test.css from busterjs.org

IE8 doesn't support Array.some(..) which is used in buster-test.js line 3408 (simple browser test)

My workaround at the moment is to set Array.prototype.some to my own if it's undefined.
However, I'm pretty sure you guys already have a replacement in place somewhere, just not always using it.

this one's pretty similar to #120 re Object.create(..), just the function and the line nr are different.

p.s.: I'm fully aware that Windows support is a thing for the future - just trying to help a little with it.
