I don't know how many people I've shown linux who would convert if only it ran iTunes, I've demonstrated the operating system to dozens and it's a comon feedback I hear. Itunes is a major application and a huge inhibitor of linux adoption.
But unless we get tens of thousands of dollars up front we shouldn't focus development effort on a huge attraction to the Linux operating system and lets ridicule someone when they do offer monetary support because it isn't significant enough.
After all we don't want to vastly increase our potential customer base and potentially get several $70 per crossover professional license or $40 per standard license fees, but rather wait until someone writes a hefty check to port it up front. 

If you build it they will come.
