*sigh* There is no Windows nor Unix "model". There is only you-get-what-
you-pay-for.

On Windows, you're a customer and the developer wants to make using his 
application as convenient as possible for you, the customer.

On Unix you don't pay and the developer couldn't care less if his 
application works together with application b or how much it takes you 
to actually get this damn thing running.

And as soon as developers start developing for Unix customers (say 
Komodo, for instance), they start following the "Windows model" - as you 
call it.
