I think you are wrong about Windows users these days (and perhaps more wrong
tomorrow). Did you read the part about developers at large companies having
a Windows box in their cubicle and using remote (who knows where?) GNU/Linux
boxes for their development? I suspect that is becoming the rule rather than
the exception. Gone are the Solaris boxes in people's cubicles.

Yes, they took the Solaris box out of my cubicle about 2 years ago. It
was replaced with a Dell running GNU/Linux. Where I work only a few
people in management have Windows installed because they need it for
their PowerPoint Engineering ;)

If anyone else needs Windows for something then we connect to one
remotely. In fact, other than my manager's office I don't know the
physical location of a machine running Windows where I work.

So while I think you have a point I also think you may be overstating it a bit.
