Tried the 100% Linux thing for awhile. Just couldn't stand it (this being the Linux of several years ago), so I went back to Windows. Honestly haven't minded at all.
Yeah, I'm just tired of paying anything for OS software, period. I got a free copy a friend got me of Windows 7. Yeah...I know I can always get a copy of MS latest OS for under $30 but I am tired of the MS cycle.
XP is at it's best now. It's been patched and has so many users that it's extremely stable. Then they release Vista *insert womp womp noise*...Then 7 and it just feels like a big beta cycle circle jerk.
While my Ubuntu OS has been growing, changing and improving without having to make a single purchase.
Also my solar panel managing board, security system, multimedia server and HTPC are using Linux to handle all of my home/family needs with little to no issues (actually no issues but in case I forgot one...I'll just put that out there).
Games are the ONLY reason why I still have Windows at all. Linux gaming ain't no where near as great as Windows gaming currently is but it's catching up and with so many games going browser based....I'm having very little reasons to hold on to Windows at all.
Now if it went Freeware for everyone...then I may stay
