Most of the existing developers for a start. The existence of all linux or all
OSX households is greater than you seem to think.
I've run nothing but linux for 6 years but that's maybe no great surprise.
However my parents and several of my non-technical friends are also running
nothing but linux these days because the days when you needed to be a geek to
use linux are long gone. Linux on the desktop is a phenomenon but it's also
becoming the defacto operating system of phones, tablets and netbooks too -
HTML+JS allows setup to be performed on your Android phone or ipad, two
platforms where Silverlight won't ever appear, even flash is banned from the
Silverlight is a dead end, it might be popular among Windows developers who
