If (insert flavour of linux here) does everything a user wants, the question is why not use it?

Linux is a superior OS in performance and reliability--if your applications run on it. (It'll even run a better Windows network than Windows Server.) Ubuntu is very nice and I'd build a box with it for any client who didn't need/want Windows.

Personally, I'm a PC gamer and I use Netflix, both completely rule out Linux for me (no, I'm not fiddling with WINE to do 80% of what Windows already does without fiddling); if it weren't for DirectX and Silverlight, I would run Linux.
