True macOS and Windows are both tier 1 platforms for rust (along with linux as 3 rd option). I don’t think it’s very relevant however, as you said yourself neither are server oriented systems (windows might a bit be). But for the majority of users it’d effectively be ‘linux or good luck’ unless they plan to deploy on a macbook.
