Probably because they're the two most used desktop operating systems and perfectly fine for development. "Linux is the best dev platform" is a meme.

100% in agreement on your second point though.

I prefer using the same system for development that I run my application in production. Linux in 100% of the cases.

Having said that, I wouldn't be surprised if Windows will switch to a Linux subsystem and kernel within the next two decades.
