Cygwin participation threshold

I wonder if part of the reason that there is a lot more
participation on Linux as opposed to cygwin is that maybe most people who
use cygwin do so because there job requires use of a windows platform but
need the tool set provided by Linux/Unix.  At home on their own
time, they are much more likely to muck around with Linux than
windows/cygwin.  Just a thought.
