...it seems to me that the best developers of software are those who use it themselves. Witness Linux, the GNU system, XFree86, KDE, GNOME, GIMP, etc., etc., etc. The people working on those projects care about what they're doing, because they will use the tools themselves.
On the other hand, I hear tell from spies inside Microsoft that many Windows developers actually use *nix on their home machines. That should tell us something. :-)
