To linux, your probably right. However, a port to Linux or a port to OS X are unlikely to be much different. With the increase in OS X usage among younger people, I could see linux support riding on the coattails of OS X support, so long as they don't dig into the NeXTStep libraries..

Maybe because the paradigm shift isn't so drastic, but change is good and change away from OSX/Windows is better.
As an OS X user, it's seamless since I'm used to working in a BASH terminal.
