My point exactly, they would do it if people are already using linux, but a major barrier to a lot of people using linux is that they haven't done it.

I know hundreds of people personally that would use linux if they could use myob, but without the hassle of virtual machines etc.

If people always accept that it won't be done until more people are using it then it won't get done at all because the 2 largest markets for linux on the desktop are gamers and business, the current linux desktop users are mostly hobbyists as they have to fall back to windows/mac for an accounting system they know how to use or to play a particular game.
