Thanks for the reply,
As per the reply, my main focus for this project will be on the following platforms:
Further, I have query related to the testing part of the project. I know the basic testing will be surely part of this project. But just wanted to check the scope of testing that is required as part of this project on these platforms.
Is there any support for different test environments already available?
Thank you...

This is not a platform per se.

The above are more or less dead.  ('Mac' here means the old, non-Unix

These two platforms are a bit less dead :-)  However, you don't have
to take special care for them.

Windows is important and one of main reasons for contemplating on the
use of a logging library, since on that platform GUI programs can't
send stderr output to the console.

Note that I would like to have a fallback to stderr in case a logging
library is not available.
