What's Keeping You On Windows in 2009?

  • Here comes the childish flame war!

    People use Windows for the same reasons they always did:
    - that's what they know
    - cheap hardware
    - they're forced to at work
    - best non-console gaming platform
    - have an app that doesn't have a counterpart on other platforms
    - are ignorant of the advantages of other platforms (not intended to be inflammatory, but a good many users (on any platform, actually) are ignorant of the platforms they do not use)

Matter cannot be created or destroyed, nor can it be returned without a receipt.
