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.

To date I've seen only two cross-platform projects done right: Transmission and WebKit — they both integrate in respective user environments to the degree when one can't differ them from native applications.

Weird choices / there are much better ones... I take it you didn't try Transmission under Windows. And WebKit is more a library (which had to be made cross-platform over the years), hardly worth mentioning here.
