Is it OK beneficial to port Linux apps to Windows?

The answer must be no, as Windows users will only see the Linux apps in a Windows environment. Of the few who may actually try to use the apps in a Linux environment, most will be scared sh*tless by the 'complicated' operating environment.

Porting the wonderful Linux apps to Windows only gives Windows victims (ahem) users less incentive move from the 'dark side'!
