Most developments are made on Windows.

Look the population of Windows computers. You really think that everyone is using Linux to make C++ programming?

C, C++, and C# are widely used: - Right!
C, C++, and C# are widely used on Microsoft Windows platform: - Right!

Have you ever heard of Microsoft Visual Studio, widely employed by programming/software development firms?

I agree with T, bye, bye!

@TB0ne, I tried to give you some rep as well but got the same message (You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to TB0ne again.), the rep system hates me!

OK, let's go for stats rather than impressions. Not easy to know if it is on MS Windows.

here are an attempt about C, C++, C# and Microsoft Visual Studio programming population:

Yep. Ever heard of many other development tools that are NOT Microsoft written, used by millions more developers? Or are you just trolling again, with more unsubstantiated nonsense?

Did you bother to read and/or understand that article? What, exactly, does C/C++/C# have to do strictly with Windows??? C and its offshoots are popular lanuages; have been for decades. Why is this a surprise????

Is there some reason you post junk threads like this?

Unfortunately, the title-statement of this thread commits the logical fallacy called "begging the question," which is customarily illustrated in logic textbooks thusly:

In the real world, "operating-system environments" are never what actually matters: "what matters" is whatever a particular computer system does, and the fact that it actually does it!

A large trucking-company that I sometimes do work for has:
  • An IBM mainframe computer running MVS/XA "Z/OS."
  • A large number of IBM AS/400 minicomputers running software that used to run on IBM System/38.
  • Lots of Windows boxes, running a lot of Microsoft software. (And very-good software it is!!)
  • Lots of Macintosh (OS/X, nee MacOS) machines.
  • Lots of Linux boxes.
  • Applications that run on iOS (iPad, iPhone).
  • Applications that run on Android.
  • (did I miss something ...?)
... and all of this is in the (very successful! ) support of the company's core business, which consists of moving freight.

The company is entirely satisfied with this environment, complex though it may be. It works.

"Linux" is a mission-critical operating environment, but one among many.

And, specifically with regard to Microsoft Windows, you must understand that what Microsoft actually sells to a business is very similar to what IBM also sells them: "a vertically-integrated suite of software products, hosted by the same vendor's proprietary operating environment." (IBM also supplies the hardware; Microsoft does not.) The "operating environment" is merely the means to the end, but the same company controls both ends of the stick.

The approach taken by Linux, and by hardware vendors such as Apple, is complementary but very different: they supply an environment. They do not have a specific proprietary interest in what you choose to run on it, and they do not manufacture their operating-environment solely in support of (their ...) other products.

Because I may sometimes defend Microsoft Windows.
