I don't understand why this issue is always brought up. Technical improvements _can_not_
become dependent on least common denominator or your so called "portability". I say f#$%
portability! There are people motivated to improve _currently_broken_ things on Linux. If
other people have problems with that they'd better get _working_ and not whine that people are
not doing their work.
Sorry for the harsh words but it's the reality.
