People who are never going to be happy about LLP64, UTF-16, or various other arbitrary yet defensible differences from Unix will never be comfortable on Windows. This isn't even a religious war, it's some fundamental cultural difference just like the relationship between directions and time.
For me "bringing forward" a meeting will always make it sooner, and UTF-8 will always be the more intuitive and sensible encoding. So no Windows for me.
