 You can support DEC's Unix without supporting DEC's Windows machines;
 they are completely unrelated.
 In fact, I see no reason to assume any malicious behaviour in only
 supporting selected machines. Each additional platform costs quite
 a bit of money in development and support, so there are good
 economic reasons for keeping the number of systems to a minimum.
