That's simple - what platform is the majority of software produced for, and
if
that's GUI-based, what platform has a working screenreader?

Blind users don't _want_ to use Windows - they want to use applications -

We do have Linux servers but most of our servers are Win 2K3 and 99% of the
users I support are using Win 2K or Win XP. So ya gotta go with the market.
