Not at all. Ncurses is portable to a broad array of operating systems.
Linux and Mac OS X are perhaps the most notable, but it has its roots in
old Unix. There are even some Windows ports (yeah, more than one, IIRC),
but I'd second the recommendation to use PDCurses on that platform instead
(as well as for DOS or OS/2). Both ncurses and PDCurses are free
implementations of the curses standard, and they're 95% compatible.
