Actually, I've seen a lot of application developers new to linux who are
using Ubuntu.  Ubuntu has become the development platform of choice for
many new linux developers...

And because they are developers, they *do* find out how to instal -dev
packages (or whatever they need for their favourite language) after
getting familiar with the system & finding out where to ask questions.
(If not, I'm not sure I want to use their applications...)
