Display Differences - Like More Info - Using Linux vs Windows?

A friend was reading that someone claimed Linux system with OpenCPN shows more map data than the windows version?
Seems odd thing for someone to say that.

Floating variant of an urban legend. Actually on windows you can see BSB4 anv NV charts using the plugins, so de facto the situation is exactly opposite.
