Many people do software for Solaris or Linux. You could argue in that
direction the same way. But anyway, I just wanted to point out that
such a statement is not likely to be globally accepted without a big
flamewar. And actually it buys nothing in the discussion at hand - any
reasonable "prior art" should be considered, and weighted acording to
technical reasoning - not something vague like prefered compatibility.
