Tony Baechler here.

I have no opinion on the NVDA list being included. I was only asking if it 
really belonged. That said, I think there is a Mozilla accessibility list. 
Should it not be included since Firefox runs on Windows? If there is a BSD 
accessibility list, should it be included even though BSD isn't currently 
accessible? On the other hand, if we include all accessibility lists for all 
operating systems and platforms, while a great central resource, I think it 
would be too hard to maintain and would be too unwieldy. As Kyle says, 
Windows users don't really care about Linux lists. Then again, the ultimate 
goal is Linux world domination, so the more Linux resources and the easier 
they are to find, the better.
