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.

Betraying? WTF? Open Source is all about freedom of choice. Last time I checked, writing open source software didn't require you to marry Linux. Open Source software thats open on other platforms than Linux is not betraying Linux.
