    Nothing is ever for everyone. It's clear what the intent was; there's no need to be pedantic.

    "Cross platform" is the word you'd see to describe what you're looking for. "For everyone" is pretty consistently applied as another form of "for your grandmother/grandfather" type of marketing speak.

    Or can we start tagging everything with appropriate audiences? "Note: only for able-bodied and cognitively performant English speaking westerners in the top 3% of global wealth with ample personal computing experience and uninterrupted wireless connectivity."

    At least then it'd be drawing attention to disparities that matter, instead of which OS you chose to work on ;)

    But really, I was a Windows guy forever until I started really writing code and then switched to Mac. If you get the chance (I know not everyone does) it's tools like this that make the switch worth it.

      Sorry, but in software terms "for everyone" for me suggests it is crossplatform.

      And yes working on a mac is fantastic, but there are a few things I have to do on a PC, so it would be amazing to have a few better tools over there as well.

      Thank you. You should start a sincere marketing tumblr.

      I'm right in the middle of a Windows to Mac switch right now actually and I'm having the same exact experience you mentioned when developing. This might actually be my only pro Mac comment to date. But after seeing all the software being developed for it i just stopped enjoying Windows as much.

      So for the past 8 years I haven't really been writing code? It's all an illusion?
