What we are seeing here is a horrible waste of coding - 95% of the
desktop world runs on Windows, and if a piece of software is unusable
for 95% of the potential userbase... that just sucks. Incentive to
change the OS mostly works for home users, it would have to be pretty
damn convincing to make a corporation with standardized desktop PCs to
make the switch.
