Even if the list is not split into these specific sub-topics, I would
certainly like to see it split along Windows/Unix lines. I use Unix
exclusively and I skip over 99% of the Windows questions, because I don't
have any experience with Tomcat on that platform. I'm sure Windows users
feel the same way about Unix related questions.
