That is not what you have to worry about.
What you do have to worry about is how many of the end-users of your
are using whichever operating system.
. . . There's not much point getting all hot and sweaty about media
delivery on one particular
operating system if a very small percentage of your clients are going to
use that operating system,
while most of them are going to be using a quite different one . . .
Let's call the above a paraphrase of your quote from Richard Gaskin.
AND; quite frankly, I wonder why "anybody" is trying to make a media
player for Livecode
that will only finction on one operating system, when Livecode's
greatest strength is
"develop once and eploy on many systems".
