I was not aware that OS X, Linux, and Solaris are all made in that state. The supported platforms may be limited, but it's not just Windows. MOS works just fine on my Mac. I don't think an argument against MOS will work if we base it on platforms supported. If there is a real concern that can be brought forward that is based on how it works, then that may get some attention. But saying that some chose to not install flash or that some use an OS not in the list (Windows, OS X, Redhat, open SUSE, Ubuntu, Solaris 10) will probably not get much attention as in their user base the users who are impacted by that are probably a small fraction.

This is actually not that bad for me. I think the login looks lame. What is the binary stream supposed to represent and the three computers shown with an arrow passing through them several times? But apart from that, it seems to work well enough. That is not to say that I need MOS or that it is an important improvement for me, just that it is not causing me a problem.
