Actually, Hortonworks does test the Hive releases on Windows with both unit
and system tests. There is also a big difference between supporting an
operating system and supporting all versions of an library.

Just to be clear, we made the Hadoop 0.20 release back in April 2009 more
than 4 years ago, which is more than 50% of Hadoop's entire lifetime. In
fact, it was before Hive 0.3 was released. Hadoop 0.20 is very old and the
discussion over how long to support it is well overdue.
