Notice the phrase "keep being Linux" at my post. 
So, question: who should better influcence the fate of a Linux distro? Ones 
that prefer Windows or the ones that liked Linux on the first place?

I did comment on the /stability/ of knotify4 and the fact that it brings your 
system down, to a level worse than Windows.

I regard as Windowish the policy that "if the appearance is OK, then the 
software is fine", rather than the Unix/Linux mentality that software must be 
rock solid and able to "survive" in a pool of bugs. 

Say NO to spam and viruses. Stop using Microsoft Windows!
