One of the main reasons why OSX and Windows support upstream is
not so great is because very few people are helping to develop,
test and support it upstream. The way to fix that IMHO is for more
people who do care about those platforms to actively engage
with us upstream to help in making those platforms move closer to
being first class citizens. If you stay on a downstream fork
forever then I don't think you'll ever see things improve.

That's a really good point. I'll definitely be more active about sending comments upstream in the future :)
