Do we need it to be perfect first time?
I don't believe there is any such thing as perfection.
Over time, the brochure will change.

Or, going the other way isn't it dangerous to mention non-Windows platforms?  Is
  it wise to mention other platforms at all?

The brochure should list the OSes found on the DVD.
That is does.
On the DVD you can have a more extensive document that states what
operating systems LibO has been compiled for, and where to obtain the
compiled binaries, and source code.

We do not have the page[s] for developers and hackers, like the German DVD had when we started this NA project. Thought that it would confuse the "normal" user and for those who would want that info, the files on the DVD would be way out-of-date withing a week of our reediting of the DVD file contents for that section.
If there is enough space on the brochure, you can state the half dozen
or so operating systems that Windows users have never heard of, that
LibO has been ported to.

If LibO is ported to Android, iOS (Apple), or Blackberry OS, then a
different brochure for mobile platforms can be constructed.

Windows, Linux [.deb, .rpm], MacOSX [Intel, PPC], plus the Windows portable version.
That is what is on the main DVD.

Plus, except for Windows, there are only a few language files other than English. It would be too much to have all 113 languages on one DVD. We do English, Spanish, French, and a few more [mostly nitch ones].

As for Android and the other ports, I have not really heard much about those, but hope they will come with the popularity of the iPad style of systems. Now you have system that use your HDTV for web browsing and social network work. Could you next do office suite work as well?

If LibO is ported to XrossMediaBar, Xbox 360 system software, or Wii
system software, then a different brochure for gaming platforms can be
constructed. (I can see it now: "How to use the Wii nunchak to edit an
Impress presentation".)
