Why do you insist on demeaning developers who do not  use YOUR preferred hardware or operating system?  

If you will take the time to re-read my original post, you will note I wrote "PIC etc".  This was intended to include all platforms, but you took exception.

The above comments  and your tag line demeaning Windows users shows your intolerance for users who, for various reasons do not agree with your choices.  Grow up.
