Just an outsider's view here...

Lots of linux/apple/ios/android apps...

But the fact of the matter is... 80%+ of the world still uses the internet through a windows platform.

"80%" of "consumers" use Windows.
but for "developers" situation dramatically opposite.
for plenty of reasons and gap become more deeper and deeper each year.

Develop for windows and get 80% of the total users...

Maybe that is reason enough.

But I agree with the previous post. There are good reasons why developers stay away from the borg... I mean windows.

What exactly are you looking for? Telling people to develop for a platform is useless without specifying it is what you are looking for.

while you can easily find guy able/wanting/alreadydone things "just for fun" on L-UX/BSD, even for talking about, Windows developers ask money.
let alone comparing results of their "work" in each cases.
also more useful/powerful/functional development tools is evailable for Free[in both meanings, usually] in areas from [various]scientific purpose to very utilitarian.

point is if "We" really needs something, like "more xxxx", he haves it, otherwise its untrue.

talking about "total users" is depend context/meaning of "users"word: majority of them, in generic computing terms, use Symbian/Android-based devices.
for example.
