As far as I know, packageInstructions will be set for the three platforms Atom runs on because of the if checks later. I just didn't know a good generic version for an operating system beyond Windows, Mac, and Linux. So, the blank will have it concat later on safely in the case, but the if statements would make any assignment on the initializer unused. I don't feel very strong either way, just felt sufficient to leave it blank.
