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.

Like Macintosh, the platform has to kick the crap out of Windows in specific areas to drive adoption.

It already does although not in areas that matter for the large masses.

Right now it doesn't so it lags behind in marketshare.

It's perfectly possible to be leading in specific areas without being the overall marketshare leader. In fact, that is usually the case.
