Joel: FogBugz NIX vs WIN share?

Joel, a personal question.  As a business owner and pundit you probably take this kind of question quite personally.

What, roughly, as broad parts, would you say the share between NIX and WIN custom is for FogBugz?  What did going cross-platform (and rewriting!) give you?  Did you get that investment back?

I guess people who use FogBugz are typically development houses, so might be less WIN- friendly than more general workplaces, but it would still be an interesting stat to give our preconceptions a bit of perspective ;-)

Thanks Joel,

First the employee count and now this gem. Just so you know, this (new?) openness is highly appreciated by naturally curious types like yours truly.

On a side note, something called "Pret a Manger" sounds, hem, depressing to French ears.

Four years of spanish, three years of russian, a smattering of japanese and czech, and I hate that I can't even *pretend* to pronounce french...

Pret a manger - awful sandwhich shop.  They have them in london too.  Looks like the inside of a washing machine

"Looks like the inside of a washing machine"

LOL, true, but the sandwiches are generally good, once you fight your way to the tills.

any idea what % of the NIX versions of FogBugz were new clients (not just previous WIN customers?) that would not have bought FogBugz WIN?

(Man, this board is fast. If you leave it for a day the topics are already down too much for things to still get noticed)
