I don't think it would be wise to single out any OS/Vendor at this point
lest they reciprocate in kind. 

Unified front or not, this is an important and integral part of the
mission to build Perl 6. If vendors get in early then more people will get
interested and the momentum will build, but if they are left behind until
after Perl 6 is released and feel left out then it will be a much harder
and steeper mountain to climb.
