Re: Why?

Stop loosing developers.

Right now, most developers choose Mac because all those Linux tools that are fundamental in any bleeding each development are available.

The other option would be a full Linux Desktop, but without any big marketing muscle behind that option, it is a niche option at most.

With that solution you keep your cheaper and familiar Windows Laptop and have all those tools available.
