If so, please don't ever set up a business of your own.

The development side is also heavily biased towards .NET and C# - with so many web application developers now choosing OS X (see the number of MacBooks at any programming conference!), and Adobe's Flash being pretty much mainstream and available across platforms, this is may end up as another technology for the die-hard Windows fans only.
