That may indeed be one way to do it. My concern is that users will get 
frustrated trying to wade through the info for the other platforms and 
just not bother with it at all. Of course based on the way they read the 
release notes they probably don't read it anyway. Be that as it may do 
we want to give them another reason not to read it and possible miss 
pertinent information.
