Free software running on a non-free operating system is still free
software. So fixing a bug or adding a feature is *not* done while it
is not implemented on all supported platforms; that's unrelated to the
issue of whether non-free OSes are a priority, etc.

Oh, I try not to break compilation for free systems, but that's as far as I go.
