Linux While it may seem like Linux-only projects are betraying their loyal base by developing Windows or OSX versions, I would argue that cross-platform development is actually better for Linux as a whole, better for individual software projects and their developers, and ultimately better for Linux users.

People use mostly Windows because that was the only thing they saw and learned. Apple use most windows applications without any trouble or better than Windows. Then; why Apple has only five percent of the world's computer market? Now, what is the difference between apple and Linux? yes, exactly; no much. Both OS's come from Unix and Linux can be fixed to be the same or better than Apple and one small or big prove is ANDROID that has more than twice the number of smart phones Apple does. Therefore; if there is a will, Linux can be more useful and resourceful than Windows and Apple. Can somebody explain?!!
