 \subsection{Windows support}
-The Windows operating system presents a difficulty to our current
-design.  Its support for scalable event notification is based
-around~I/O completion ports, which are integrated tightly with the
-Windows threading mechanism, and which would require a considerable
-amount of replumbing to support.
+As we are primarly Unix-based developers, we have left~GHC's event
+management on Windows unchanged for now.  We believe that we can
+accommodate Windows, which supports scalable event notification
+via~I/O completion ports, with our current design.
