I can't speak for all Linux folks, but while I love the FOSS idea, not everyone else does. (Artistically, I like the creative commons license--if it's good enough for Trent Reznor, it's good enough for me.) That having been said, money talks. If a program works well under WINE, I'm not adverse to throwing some money a programmer's way along with a note that says "Hey thanks for not being a douchecanoe about linux."
Some companies (*cough* Hackshield *cough*) will deliberately break programs so they can't work with linux or WINE. We got really lucky with Literature & Latte.
