Yeah, I think you have a good point here. The *nix culture is a culture indeed.

Just browsing through the Ubuntu repositories (via Software Center). Almost all of the summaries include the language within the first sentence. I find it kind of funny that most Linux developers seem to be actually developing for other Linux developers instead of users.

The Ubuntu repository has an amazing amount of package descriptions that the first five words contain the language. I'm a developer myself, but I never figured my users cared. I could understand, however, that being open source, it might have more meaning, but are we developing for people or other developers?
