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.
