Should they postpone shipment of windows version until mac version is ready?

Why not accept the situation: Some software ships first for the mac, some 
software first for the PC.

I am on PC because employer use PC only, and most high end graphics software 
is way back mac versions in stability and even functionality.

I just have to accept this as the state of the world, can't blame Adobe and 
friends for being "mac first people".

But Maple is good software, so trying it out would not be a bad idea
