> was supposed to be ported to Windows

It was ported to Windows. I cannot check the remarks about stability because I use Linux, but it sounds plausible. There's only a handful (maybe 2 or 3) developers working on Windows support in their spare-time AFAIK. I would guess that KDE had anticipated more Windows developers joining the project as it progressed towards maturity.

That's always the problem with open-source projects: It's very hard to do planning and forecasting with a bunch of volunteers. Even if they commit to a roadmap, there will always be someone who has to step down because of private issues (new job, new child, etc.). Go is in a much better position since Google has headcount assigned to it (again, AFAIK).

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
