What I meant was that if you walk up to a (non-Windows) computer and type
`awk`, it starts up (and prints a help message, if it's gawk).  But if you
type f90 or whatever, you probably get "f90: command not found".  That's
not to say that you can't install it easily enough if you have root, but it
does mean Fortran is less widely available.
