Are you talking historically ie what was the first platform that hotspot
ran on? (I think it was Windows but not 100% sure). Or do you mean
currently are new features developed on one platform and then ported to
the others? For this latter question typically new features are
prototyped on the platform most accessible to the developer doing the
work, but quickly ported to the other platforms - often only becoming
visible to others once all platforms are supported.
