..there's more reasons; for one, it's a great platform for Windows-developers. I kid thee not; it makes one re-think a bit more than just the UI. Small example;
 
Don't you hate installing all tools on a Windows-machine? All those little setups, installers, asking the same bullsh*t; what location and do you want a Toolbar for IE? Wouldn't it be great if you could apt-get under Windows? Write a simple batchfile to install all crap in one go on a fresh system? Well, there's already two applications that provide such a service under Windows.
 
I think we'll see more environments in the future where you find different Operating Systems, partly due to that economic fact and the current state of affairs. 50 bucks might not sound like much, but once you're talking about an entire department..
 
(and think of all the people you'd make happy if you were to announce the company will *not* upgrade to Windows 8 with a touchscreen!*)
