That's as it should be, and there are very logical reasons for it.

The >> 90% case with windoze users is that they only bring you problems and stamp their foot, demanding an instant fix.

The >> 90% case with Open Source users is that they not only herald a problem, but pitch-in to be a part of the solution.

From the software producer perspective, the Open Source users are a valuable, time- and labor-saving, resource; while the windoze-using crowd amounts to little more than a "Kaizen liability".
