What is the same with both Moz and Chromium is interesting. Both are highly complex packages PORTED from Windows as an afterthought.
For Mozilla, that's simply not true - at least not "ported from _Windows_". All the way back to Netscape Navigator, the code has run on Linux and Unix. The port was never an afterthought. And today, if you surveyed Mozilla core developers' laptops for their preferred OS, if any came out on top, it would probably be Mac OS X. And yet no-one claims that the Linux version of Moz is "ported from Mac as an afterthought".
