You GNOME it: Windows and Apple devs get a compelling reason to turn to Linux

Joe Gurman

I must have missed something

But where in the article is headline explained or justified? Yes, almost every bistro on the planet is now shipping with GNOME. But so what? How many desktop/laptop Linux systems are there, and how much are their users willing to spend on software each year? Class, compare and contrast with the number of Windows desktop/laptops or even Macs out there, and please tell me why there is a compelling reason (other than the personal like/dislike ones that have aways been there) for a dev to start supporting Linux apps now.
