That's basically the argument I was having decades ago with a buddy of mine about Linux (he was a much bigger fan than I ever was).

His argument: The beauty of it is that if something doesn't work, you can fix it yourself!

Mine: This adds no value to the receptionist who just wants her computer to work.

While Linux has improved tremendously, my position's still pretty much the same. I'm a developer, maybe I could fix some of those problems myself, but I just don't have the time or interest to become a Linux kernel expert - I'm trying to solve my own problems, not somebody else's.
