Where's Windows

Interesting to note that this is a market place that MS desperately wanted to grab.

Also interesting to note that applications, graphics ones in particular (i.e. Photoshop) start their development cycle in the movie world. So if all new development is being done on Linux then those apps everyones been complaining about will be ported pretty soon.
