Porting software to windows can be a good thing. (Providing the original is not abandonned as has happened with some software). It makes it easier to have RO at home while work has windows (or even vice versa). It also means that users can invest time in a program knowing it's fate isn't tied to a platform, which is likely to strenthen the position of RO.
