The AVR Tools Group does not think all users of the AVR use Windows. We are 
aware that there are a number of users on other platforms such as Linux, 
FreeBSD, and others. Yes, the majority of AVR users develop on the Windows 
platform. Currently AVR Studio only distributes on the Windows platform. The 
tools for our newer AVR32 processors are distributed on Windows, Ubuntu, and 
Fedora. So it is wrong to think that the AVR Tools Group is not aware of other 
users. It takes time to build something that is truly cross-platform and 
especially something as complex as AVR Studio.

If you need some resource, such as documentation, and you cannot get it because 
it is only available on Windows and you do not have Windows, then please 
contact avr[AT]atmel[DOT]com to request it.
