I view stable buildbots as staying up and testing critical platforms.
Would "supported" and "unsupported" (or "critical" and "optional"?) make more sense? "Unstable" suggests "broken" to me, not "we don't really care about these."
I don't know who came up with these names in the first place. However there's a slight nuance here: some platform may be supported, but still some buildbot end up in the "unstable" category if it has issues of its own (for example the machine has a flaky network connection, etc.). And indeed there are Linux and Windows machines in the "unstable" category.
