    There is a lot more software available for Windows. More users are familiar with these apps. Linux/Unix on the other hand has a lot of good programs and mostly they are open source. These free programs may appeal better to a company on a budget. AS for writing your own code, they are 2 different skill sets. Windows being the larger from what I have seen.
