Neither am I. I was (until mental health forced me to quit) a software engineer and sysadmin.

Cross platform UI is not a huge deal, there are plenty of good systems to deal with that, such a Qt - which EAGLE uses.

One problem with open source software is that they often do not care about backward compatibility, and change things on a whim. It's a constant moving goalpost which is a frequent cause of issues. I say that from experience having developed across all of the desktop platforms (including Linux).
