i usually try to get my linux/windows setups almost identical (in look
and use for the most part) that way i can switch back and forth
between boxes and everything is the same:  email, browsing, and
coding, etc.

there's nothing wrong with writing a linux only application.  there's
tons of them out there, but doing it in a cross-platform language
hurts a bit
