With a little searching, I found that a lot of our treasured Linux programs are available for microcrap windows. Now, when people ask me, "why linux", my first reaction is to tell them what great things I can do with it. I tell them about GIMP, KDE, GNOME, gaim, xmms, mplayer, and other great programs. You see, that is Linux's trump card. Turns out, that these are all available for Windows users too! I know I should be embracing the open source philosophy, but I am wondering what everyone else thinks about our favourite programs being available for windows.

Should people install Linux to use these programs and get the "real" experience, or should they be available for windows users, and help keep windows useful, our only real competition for the desktop market.
