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.

Really? Which Linux distribution is supported for 10 years like Windows XP?

You do realize that one of the reasons while Windows prevailed in business (and thus in homes) is because of the support. And backwards compatability. Backwards compatibily - yeah I'm sure you never heard that, because Linux is a giant mess and stuff goes deprecated even before you can learn it's APIs, lol.
