In an ideal world, everyones favorite platform is supported, sadly the more builds/fork the more problems and resources required.

Obviously, if CS main goal was multi-platform then it would be in java :D
Thankfully, it's not!

I like keeping a clean/minimalist VM (VirtualBox) and it simple and works very well!
I think most non window users expect specialised software to be mostly on windows.
http://virtualbox.org/ (free for personal use or a license is $50USD)

Being mostly a Linux user, I have no problem with CS being bear bones win32/MFC/VC++.
Unless Microsoft is changing the rules (ie app store?) then I don't get the business case for multi-platform support.

Just my thoughts.
