Sorry?? Am I missing something here? We are supporting W32 since about
somewhen in the 90ies as far as I remember ... what are you talking about?

What has criticizing to do with supporting?

Remember we are doing that on volunteer basis, none of us is earning 
one meager cent from that, and now you ask us not to criticize those
stupid shortcomings that creates long lng hours of headache for us?

Please either start contributing code that is portable yourself, or
stop telling us what we should or should not do, thanks.
