Porting free software to Windows

Porting free software to Windows

Recently I've tried to found OS replacement for MS project. I've found 'planner' (former MrProject) -- it seems to be good enough. The only problem: I can't send planner file to customer, because customer uses Windows and Planner has its Windows port at very early stage (almost unusable). As a result, I am Linux user and I can't use OS application because it is not ported to Windows. I am forced to use VMWare, MS Windows and MS Project.

From my point of view, refusing to port application to any platform is going by MS road -- they refuse to port MS Office to Linux...
