[Libreoffice-qa] Improving the OS Field

Hi All,

I'd like to suggest we improve the selection of OSes in the OS listbox, 
by getting rid of the ones we dont build for or have 0 bugs for (e.g. 
AIX, HP-UX) or have virtually no open bugs for (e.g. Solaris, OpenBSD), 
as we have an 'Others' entry that should be sufficient for that.
I also think we should add ones that have unique bugs that dont happen 
in different versions. Here are some of the ones i think should be added.

Windows XP - quite a few bugs exclusive to this
Windows Vista - quite a few bugs exclusive to this
Windows 10 - would assume new bugs are being found exclusive to this 
that dont affect 7 or 8
Windows (64-bit) - quite a lot of LO x64 build only bugs
Linux (64-bit) - i've seen a number of these that dont affect the 32-bit 

Steve would better know if we needed to break up the 'Mac OS X (All)' 
entry into additional entries.

With this improved OS field, i believe we can retire the Hardware field.
