Latin Dictionary for Windows. A complete Lewis & Short!

Lewis & Short's Latin Dictionary is one of the two most comprehensive Latin-English Dictionaries. Unlike its counterpart, Oxford Latin Dictionary, Lewis & Short has been around long enough to be available in public domain versions. Project Perseus and Diogenes have already made L&S accessible by anyone who does not feel like using (and owning) a paper copy which is quite voluminous.  Here, I finally present a complete Lewis & Short for Windows. It is a free standalone program, reasonably fast on any modern PC and best of all the definitions and the Latin quotes are color-coded. As a result, this dictionary is perhaps the easiest to read version of Lewis & Short yet!
