Apple today released ProRes RAW for Windows in a beta capacity (via Mark Gurman), with the software designed to allow ProRes RAW and ProRes RAW HQ video files to be watched in compatible applications on Windows machines.
According to Apple, the software will let the files be played within several Adobe apps:

The Apple ProRes RAW for Windows software can be downloaded from Apple's support document.

* and it's not "view their codec"... codec = 'compressor/decompressor' ... so it's viewing files encoded with a codec.
Where's the sarcasm /s flag on this post? If you were being serious, you know that macOS is UNIX at the core, of which Linux is a derivative.
Mac hardware are the most capable computers on the planet, able to run the widest array of software.... macOS, Windows, Linux (both directly and virtualized). Fire up the Terminal and you have command-line access like any UNIX and Linux machine out there. I run a full web server on my MacBook Air that is an exact replica of my 20+ Linux servers around the world. There's zero difference in terms of which software that I can run in that regard.
Gaming, OpenGL, Java, PHP, Scientific usage, all of them are optimised for Linux or Windows. Even MS Office on MacOS is slower than Windows. And it is no surprised MacOS loses. Try timing the difference on iTunes for Windows and MacOS, or Photoshop on MacOS and Windows, or some other pieces of software that is Mac centric but running on another platform, you will get the results that flavour macOS.
I would also like to mention the BootCamp Drivers aren't really that updated, so the Windows benchmarks is likely slightly lower. ( Not that it would make a differences in the Wins and Loses case )
Although I tends to agree in many professional cases, macOS as a platform is quite limited. It is now mostly used by Audio, Video pros and Developers.
