We support running our software on various versions of Windows and
MacOS for the sake of users that want to run our programs there, but
that does not mean an endorsement of those systems.  On the contrary,
we say they are unjust and we urge users to stop running them.

We want to teach people to give the highest importance to the ethical
issue, the injustice of nonfree software.  Mere technical issues (such
as state of maintenance) are all secondary, and we want to make our
position on this clear.  So we should not apply words such as
"malpractice" to technical issues.  Windows IS malpractice, and
the worst malpractice is Windows 10.
