That's simply not true.

Mac/Win Players, in English, are the first deliverables. Other languages 
follow. Other operating systems follow. Other device types follow. 
Documentation of the file format follows. Usually the whole set of 
development is done within a half-year or so.

It doesn't matter much, but attempts at revisionist history are a sore 
spot with me.
