yes, we are argue about that. Because it is simply stupid to use
outdated software. It is dangerous. And using properitary outdated
software makes it impossible to fix/patch things yourself. He can't even
fix the TCP stack issue from some weeks ago.

Using TOR on properitary Software is always stupid, because you cannot
expect TOR to make you "safe" on the internet if your operating system
is backdoored. (With Windows and OSX are)

So it is a problem for TOR so ship TOR for those platforms because it
tells the user something that it cannot deliver. Of course official TOR
developers would never go that far as say this, but it is what they think.

For example listen to the Q&A from Jacob Applebaum in München. He talked
a little bit about how hard it is to make TOR secure on Windows and how
much wasted time it is.

If you don't understand software, please stop spamming your comments on
the mailing list.
