You don't want a flamewar here, do you? Let's put it mildly - I don't agree
with your statement about "all operating systems used by anyone", as I know
quite a few distinct operating systems (different from Unix and Win32) which
are still used by quite a few people in total (even if you don't care at all).

If you want to discuss this particular question further, please, use my
private e-mail for responding.
