This excessive Linux dominance in both node count and
bandwidth really should be balanced out, like why not?
I'd expect if some of the big relays switch to any other OS
that would flatten out the bandwidth part pretty easily. You'd
have to check say the top 10, 25, 50 or so relays to see to
what extent they are part of this mess, I'm sure it's similar.
