Many Windows users would like to use GNU/Linux also.  (Conversely,
many GNU/Linux users would like to use Windows occassionally)
I think it is very important, just I'm short on time :(

I think you're wrong :p

They'll support where there is money.

Historically, there hasn't been much money in supporting general purpose
desktop environments in GNU/Linux.  Hence, NTFS and Windows compatibility
hasn't been a high priority.  (It's too hard and too expensive to enter &
compete in that game).

I haven't been approached by anyone wanting to contract me to do it...
