There are many people who, like me, are tied to a MS Windows OS at
work (that's not up to me). Those people could not use and contribute
to GNU Emacs if it wasn't because there is a port for that platform.
That's a valid point, in general, but if you want to live in freedom
you need to change your work situation. Can you bring your own
computer to do the work on? Can you boot GNU/Linux on that machine
from a live CD?
