Because I am the only one that uses Linux in here.
I obliged my developpers (I am project manager) to use 
Xubuntu-Linux/Emacs to develop. They're quite happy to use it now (at 
the beginning they did not know about Linux) and they dont want to 
get/switch back to Windows anymore (No, they're not affraid of me ;-)).

When Seven will get there, I want to know if the other project managers 
(that continued to run windows, XP) will laugh or not. That's all. I 
noticed our Linux  system are a bit slow now, but that's because we 
installed plenty of things, and I dont know what Seven will be about...

It's definitely not about gadget. I just mentionned compiz as a 
superficial example.
