while logic/exs mkII is a monolithic application it has been neccessary to release the performance tool for mac as a plugin in logic (thanks to emagic, because AFAIK it\'s the first 3rd-party software running within logic/exs)
the performance tool for windows is another beast - it works as a standalone tool, which is hooked between the sequencer and the sampler (if both are on the same machine you will need virtual midi ports additionally)
and of course it is possible to run a setup where your sequencer is on windows and your sampler is exs within logic on a mac and vice versa your sequencer is logic on a mac and gigastudio on a pc using the respective version of the performance tool.
although i have to admit, i like the GUI of the mac version more than the actual GUI on windows ;-)
