I think it goes both ways. ;)
As a Linux user, I'd most likely go straight to the Linux/Unix section, under
the impression that clients listed there would support my platform better
than those listed under cross-platform. Mac users might assume there are
only two client options, especially since the "Apple MacOS" section appears
If it gets turned into a grid, as one person suggested, that may help
cross-platform clients from being overlooked by regular users, while at the
same time helping businesses spot the cross-platform ones.
