A developer who mostly targets Windows wouldn't. But if you look at the statistics [1] you'd see that in the category of systems accessing the web mobile&tablet systems (and we are excluding servers here, who are virtually all UNIX systems anyway) have been steadily overtaking classic desktop systems in market share, from which it can be reasonably argued that it's only a matter of time until the amount of development for Windows relative to overall development is declining (regardless of how little it already has).

According to Google on their Android Developers Backstage podcast, the majority of Android Studio users are on Windows.

Assuming that's accurate it's indeed interesting information about the current state of affairs, though it doesn't answer the question of how that changed over time and how it's going to continue to change (the latter of which being the basis for my speculation). Have they released that information somewhere officially (with additional information about how they acquired the data, etc.)?
