The issue is orthogonal to operating systems. It's about code quality and release process. There is good and bad code on every OS, written for money and just for fun. Emacs runs on Windows, by the way.

many kernel dev's are also paid for their work, still they have an opinion. I think that's also true for Windows/MS developers, though their opinion most of the time just won't be listened too.

People working in the "Windows World" are resigned to the fact that they are working on a hopelessly buggy system that never will be fixed. You either acquiesce to this situation ("it's a paycheck"), or you get out, as I did eight-and-a-half years ago.
