You're absolutely correct: "open source" doesn't mean "cross-platform" ... but the most successful open-source projects understood that GETTING that source in front of as many sets of eyeballs as possible also meant making it operable under as many different toolkits on as many different platforms as possible.
Restricting it to a SINGLE proprietary OS by the toolkit needed to work on it is not exactly embracing the spirit of open source, even if there are more people running Windows.
But this is getting way off topic ...

But to call it "open source" is a little disingenuous ... no Linux or Mac support for the development tools?
