You don't think explicit posts rank ordering Windows below "GNU/Linux"
might give some users the impression that PSPP was a "GNU/Linux first

But I think your actions actually suggest that PSPP is primarily a "PSPP
first" project -- that you and the other devs do your best to make PSPP
better and I've observed the team fixing Windows bugs.  So, that's what
makes me think that there isn't really a "Linux first" attitude or not
one that worries me.

I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe...
functions on fire in a copy of Orion.
I watched C-Sharp glitter in the dark near a programmable gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like Ruby... on... Rails... Time for Pi.
