I think the responses here are indicative of how having dual boot windows and windows vitualization on the mac will not harm Mac applications availability. Most OSX users dont even want to use perfectly fine and fully, completely and as thoroughly NATIVE as can be X11 applicaitons under OSX. Theres no way the majority of people are going to dual boot or fire up an instance of Windows unless there is absolutely no other way.

I personally enjoy having access to X11 apps and I use some (bluefish and gimp) daily. But I've straddled the Mac/unix fence since the early 90's. I do think Apple could integrate X11 a bit better into OSX so that interoperation is relatively seamless. In Tiger X11 is an optional install (though, unlike classic, it is included on the install disks). I'd like to see X11 automatically installed and more popular apps packaged similar to Gimp.app to make installations less intrusive. Non-tech users simply arent going to mess with fink or darwin ports, no matter how easy they are to use.
