I can hardly disagree

Most of us know what an Evil Windoze is [big time]! So why do we port apps to Windows!

a) We port all the apps to Windows so that Windows users use them and stic to Windows!!!

b) On the contrary Windows never ports apps to Linux, it is all Codeweaver and Wine doing the hard work

Same goes for Mac, Quicktime !

How about doing it the windows way of things

" You are licensed to use this open source app for only 15 days on your Windows Operating System, If you want to use it further, switch to Linux Operating System for an infinite trial of this app (::wink::)! "
