Why I stopped developing end user apps with Linux as the target platform long ago

I always suspected Linux usage was near 1% when considering all end user computers but then I came across this ranking of operating systems visiting the BBC homepage which tells that only 0.41% of the 32 million requests to the BBC servers analyzed came from Linux users.

It means that for every 1000 users stumbling by my software only 4 of them will be able to run it !

Yes, but those 4 users are your 4 absolutely most awesome users!

Yes, and the 4 users in the world who'd roll their own apps.
