I was amazed at how quickly I got people literally yelling at me in ALL CAPS in emails. Apparently providing a compiled binary for linux outside of a package like deb or rpm is grounds for a hanging.

You should probably just say "It's OSS, feel free to make a GTK port" and be done with it.

So far I've only received kind words from Windows users. Can't say the same for Linux people, although they are the ones offering the most help, too.

It's a different culture I guess. The Windows people take what they can get, the Linux people will complain form dusk 'till dawn but are ready to contribute code to resolve it.

I use both Windows and Linux, but I'm partial to my Windows machine. Linux has many things going for it: usability, unfortunately, is not one of them.
