It is not just Windows that uses UTF-16.  If you look at the wikipedia reference for UTF-16 it lists some common OS and applications:

Actually, most of the items you list *can* use UTF-16, but *prefer* to
use UTF-8. Windows and Java are the exceptions that I know about, and
it's causing them endless grief  [...]

Phil, I don't see all this.

Major operating system usage
UTF-16 is the native internal representation of text in the Microsoft Windows NT/Windows 2000/Windows XP/Windows CE, Qualcomm BREW, and Symbian operating systems; the Java and .NET bytecode environments; Mac OS X's Cocoa and Core Foundation frameworks; and the Qt cross-platform graphical widget toolkit.

I agree with David, but Windows (and Java) programmers have to live with this encoding...
