I wouldn't put too specific statements in the table. It should be  
enough to have standard marks: Yes, no, partial etc. If there's  
something which must be said it can be put into a footnote under that  
table. Quite many feature comparisons are made this way.

Also, I don't like putting features into columns. It's much easier to  
read the tables if every table has apps in columns. Rows (features)  
can then be added more freely. It's enough to use shortened names for  
apps, like BT, Xiph, SfW etc.

The OS icons are not needed. There may be difference between Win9x  
support, Win2000 support, XP support and 64bit Vista support. They can  
be put to rows.

Then the tables would look like this with icons instead of text marks:

            BT Xiph SfW
footnotes  V   V    v(1)
feature2   X   X    V
     (1): Doesn't support long footnotes
