Supported platforms

The ilg-vscode.xpack extension is fully portable and works on any platform supported by VS Code; internally it relies on xpm, which is also a portable application running on all platforms supported by npm/node.

However, for projects using binary xPacks, they are available mainly on the modern platforms, like Windows/macOS/Linux.
