Bugzilla doesn't know that 'All' is a different kind of choice than
'Windows', so you can't do your first suggestion directly. But you
can just select "all" and "windows" and it will give you bugs in both
of those categories.

In order to get the bugs that apply to any operating system, just
don't select anything in the operating system box. However, this does
give you about 300 bugs, but there isn't anything to be done about
that (except fix them :).
