You mean Platform & OS?  I've seen dozens editing bugs that are associated
with Windows or Mac since some behaviors need to be platform-specific or
there are platform-specific quirks.  I've never really seen a good use of
Platform because platform is usually determined by OS.  I'd like to see qt,
gtk, chromium, etc... on platform (or better be called as ports?) instead.
