no, it's just you. ;)

what you say is not true. they're coming. i migrated from windows to
linux. we ported a few plugins. energyxt is being ported. there will be
more and more, and i do not believe it requires any special effort or
bounty to persuade them. slowly, people are going to realize that
windows is a dead end. sometimes all you have to do is wait, and help
the people who just arrived to find a good start.
