* Force of habit and experience
The first and the hardest part in adopting whatever other OS would be unlearning Windows. But then what - being a total noob once again, breaking it twice a day, not being able to solve my own problems at all? Aaargh... I loathe the very idea of going back to that!
* Gaming (AAA titles at that)
Which, of course, is a valid reason only for certain alternatives and not others.
* No free (as in cheese) alternatives
If we stretch the concept, Windows kind of is free for me because of Dreamspark. About on the same level as bundled OS X or largely corporate-sponsored Linux kernel.
* Mobile OS suck
Plain and simple. I'd rather use a CLI-only OS for the rest of my life than suffice with any of those misdesigned, incomplete retard turds.
* Not caring for the other meaning of free (as in diarrhea) aspect in the slightest
This idealistic hipster evangelist subculture does not impress me. In fact, it annoys heavily at times.
