Might it be better to say "All versions of Windows currently supported
by Microsoft"?

What will happen when MS drop support for Win7? I'm sure it will bitrot
fairly quickly, and this will save somebody from forgetting to update
the wiki :-)

Maybe Dennis can write one?

Writing wikis is hard ... (I should know - for my pains I've volunteered
as editor for one :-) but I do agree with Dennis a bit - even a
one-screen overview telling people where to look for more detail would
be great.

Simple rule - if a single chunk of text (be it code, wiki, whatever)
doesn't fit on one screen in a decent-size font, it's too big :-)
