There are many people who, like me, are tied to a MS Windows OS at
work (that's not up to me).  Those people could not use and contribute
to GNU Emacs if it wasn't because there is a port for that platform.

Therefore, I think that the ports of Emacs for other platforms
(specially Windows) is useful for the free world, because they extend
the number of users and contributors of GNU Emacs (which is  part of
"the free world").
