Remember, Stallman was developing GNU on proprietary platforms at first. KDE on Windows is probably the epitome of OSS development - a huge OSS project starting a port to the most important proprietary platform. This is up there with Apache or PHP being optimized for Windows, in terms of impact/importance.

You do have to realize that some people are used to Windows, some prefer it, and some aren't able to choose their OS (predefined environment).
