to the contrary. the smaller the user set the more critical to use
very different forms for testing, and using different operating
systems is far more important than using different adaptations on a
single operating system.

remember all certifications and regulations are operating system
neutral.

there are many adaptations that will work on a single operating system
that fail miserably when used cross platform.
