Default OS Specific Software

I was wondering how much OS Specific Software frustrates the average user. What do you like/dislike about OS Specific Software.

As in windows compared to linux? I just started using linux but I would have to say I agree, I know of all these great programs and stuff but you can't use any of them. You can't really blame anyone though, I probobly wouldn't spend time rewriting a program for linux if I knew that more people used windows.

I can't get Office XP to run on my Playstation!....



..........maybe reading what platform the software is for, sort of answers a question that never really needed asking?
