According to eric:
# you forget, they are OPEN SOURCE. windows might not be, but the NVDA 
screen reader is.
You forget that although NVDA is open source, it is designed to run on 
an operating system that is fundamentally different, and would require a 
complete redesign to even come close to making it work anywhere else. 
Hell, it can't even run on ReactOS. What reason do they have to redesign 
the screen reader to run on anything else? Why should they go to such 
trouble? And furthermore, why has no one else stepped up? Maybe because 
it's just not practical.
