I don't have any specific knowledge, and definitely no religion in this 
debate, but according to [1] (and I have no idea how valid the author's 
statements are), your point of view seems to be a bit *nix-centric. In 
the idea of trying to get more developers for Windows, wouldn't it help 
to find a "standard" that applies across all platforms ?
