I believe it's a poor name because Microsoft pretends to have the trademark
on "Windows" in the US and is sueing other companies for this reason.

Therefore my preference is to use the compiler-defined macros
(defined _WIN32 || defined __WIN32__), for which one cannot be sued,
or a neutral macro like 'WOE32' (just as neutral as 'MSDOG' was in the
past :-)).
