I think it's cultural. Windows GUIs (atleast till recently) all use the
Microsoft sanctioned set of widgets and controls and the ecosystem
around it so it was the "one way" to develop apps there. Things are
different now with cross platform widget sets. 

In the free software desktop market, there's a lot of choice which
results in multiple options.
