I recently finished working at a startup. While there, I made a point of putting together a development/build environment that would work for both Windows and Unix developers (actually, it was usable by Eclipse, JBuilder, IntelliJ, EMACS, vi, etc., users). I did this because the existing build/development had been hacked by the in-house Linux bigots to be usable only on Unix. I mean what an abomination: Ant build scripts that would only work on Unix!

Anyway, I just came across this, which makes a lot of good points about Unix bigotry.

I pretty much agree with Joel's assessment.
