dude, that's pure crap. you obviously have developed some kind of tunnel vision.
example: music trackers. there's a really good tracker for windows:http://www.renoise.com/
you can still code in c on Windows, although c++ or c# or whatever you like. even basic, if you prefer.
Games: there's thousands of games on PC that are fun to play and not violent! Even Monkey Island 3 (or was it 4?), Warblade (great Galaga clone), and not to forget WinUAE!!!
get a clue. you can even run Linux if you hate M$!
