I call BS.  Microsoft hardly forces anyone to write programs that just 
run on Windows; everybody just decides that they won't support other 
OSes.  The could if they wanted.  They're the ones choosing not to.
I think it's wrong when a myriad of other companies can dictate what one 
single company is allowed to do with their own product.  Don't like 
where MS is going?  Switch to *nix or make Steve Jobs all giddy by going 
Mac en masse.  MS'll get the point.
