I disagree, with such a small number of test participants, I wouldn't
think it is vital to have both of those operating systems represented,
although it would be nice. With a small test, if possible, having users
of a couple of different kinds of AT is better, if testing with blind
users (like one using JAWS, another Window eyes etc) or low vis using a
couple of screen mag applications - would be good. Ultimately when
putting together a user test you will end up going with whoever shows up!

Cheers

Josh
