Let me rephrase this for you, and see if I'm close: you want to prevent the
software from being dependent on proprietary software, including proprietary
operating systems and their components?
If so, then this is like the GPL without the system software clause. Win32
versions would have to use an open source cross-platform toolkit, or stick
with standard interfaces. A license like this could certainly be Open Source,
but it would have practical problems, since you would be denying certain
developers the right to use standard components they may be used to.
