0) It's free.

1) It's enabled by default on clean installs.

2) Oh BTW you don't have to pay for it.

3) It doesn't harass you to upgrade from the free version to a paid version all the time.

4) It never stops working and demands your credit card on threat of your system being naked to 1337 h4><0rz.

5) It mostly just works and stays out of the way.*

6) Did I mention it's free.

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
