Your sig should read "divided among 3 OSs." Between is a preposition used for two object, such as "between the two buildings." Among is use for 3 or more.

It's really hard to say. That means the OS manufacturer (Apple, m$, Linux, etc.) has to do cleanup for all these 3rd parties. Yes, it's quite a task, I suppose.
But you got two sides to this:
1. The OS developer should safeguard against crappy 3rd party software.
2. The 3rd party software developers shouldn't be making crappy software!
