Is Freshmeat about UNIX or is it about free software?
IMHO, freshmeat should be about free software. Coincidentally, most free software is written using the UNIX system call interface, and using languages common to UNIX platforms.
But what is wrong with free software on Windows? If the software isn't any good, it shouldn't be on fm anyway. If it *is* good and the software is free, it's possible to port the software to Linux. And someone will. This benefits Linux and free software more than it benefits commercial operating systems.
Porting free UNIX software to Windows can also benefit Linux. When I began using free software it was Emacs and LaTeX on MS-DOS, because I needed that for university work. This way, I discovered the "coolness" of free software and began using Linux in stead of DOS. If the Win32 GIMP port is ready, this will certainly attract some more Windows users to Linux.
Any good free software package will benefit the open source movement as a whole. That's why any good quality free software should be on freshmeat.
I still have doubts about commercial software for Linux, though. IMHO, commercial software for Linux should be on freshmeat as long as there isn't a better free replacement.
I other words, only the commercial software we really 'need' should be included.
