Stability, security, and freedom are the main selling points. And 
perhaps the convenience of having a vast amount of software included on 
the CD.

One of the things about open-source is that you can't stop people from 
porting software to other operating systems. If it's good, someone WILL 
port it to Windows sooner or later, so we don't have any must-have apps 
wich exist only for Linux.
