None really.  This is, afiak, more of a pesonal preference,
philosophical or policital issue.  For the average user it does not
matter.  Heck for the average user, Windows or Mac OS X is more then
enough... when i works properly.

Personally i just use what works and what i like.  The license comes
second, and i don't have a problem using *any* OSI approved license, i'm
not a %100 anything freak ;)
