As an example, Google developers require a special permission to use Windows (as they consider it less secure).

Why, the main reason is because you can identify issues at the "start" of the product development life cycle rather than later on. It's just best practice. I understand that Dev's feel more productive on certain platforms, however a percentage of the Dev's need to take some pain, so that the customer doesn't.

They can run Windows on Parallels or VirtualBox on their Macs. I'd hope a company that's into virtualization would know to do this (I have no doubt).
