Look at how x-platform OSS software can be without much hassle.
Best organised example : Debian imho.

Getting no traction cross distribution but on the same CPU family
is nearly 100% attributable to not understood dependency and build processes.

Same with all the display and usability problems Adobe has on linux.
Big mouth and a long list of what linux lacks. But OSS software invariably
does not have the issues while not lacking in performance either.
