Well, you didn't.

Which part in
<cite Hans Aberg>
GNU is in the first hand about POSIX, which nowadays is a subset of
UNIX; all else are extras.

So writers of OSs only have to make sure they are POSIX compliant,
and GNU code should work.
</cite Hans Aberg>
do you fail to understand?

Speaking for myself, I assume to have the freedom not to code for the
Windows O/S.  Correct me if I am wrong.  In fact, the last product of
Microsoft I used was some DOS 5.x (dunno for sure).  I have not
touched DOS/Windows box since then.  I use another O/S that fits my
needs.  I do not see how this could possibly be a "Anti-Windows"

You may have noticed that I have attempted to get pertinent
information from your side nevertheless.  I do not see a
reasonable attempt from your side to address my questions.
Instead you keep insinuating, implying, and suggesting things,
see below...

***Again*** a suggestion the GMP is "broken".
Could you kindly explain what you consider broken?

Note: the absence of a W64 branch does not mean GMP is broken.

Now, pretty please, facts and no more suggestions whatsoever.
