Question minicom for different OS

hi everyone!
Well, upto now i have been using minicom on linux platform.Can any one tell me whether minicom is meant only for linux or is it platform independent?
Actually i'm connecting 2 PC's using RS-232 and then passing and viewing the messages using minicom. Both the PC's use Fedora11. Now suppose i want to do the same thing between 2 pc's where one uses linux and other uses windows. So, if minicom is meant only for linux then how to do this?
Can some one also suggest some useful links or tutorials regarding this serial communication between to different OS?

minicom is for Linux only, it is not available for Windows. On Windows you would need to use a different serial terminal application like HyperTerminal.
