The previous analogy of Windows is incorrect.

A more proper analogy is : "I test on LAMP, because that is what I use. If
others want to make Drupal work on Windows and IIS, then let them test
there, and propose patches that do not put Drupal through hoops to support
that. We are not specifically excluding Windows, and in fact some people use
Drupal just like that".

Same for PostgreSQL, MS-SQL, SQLite, ...etc.
