I don't own an Apple because I can't afford it -- more expensive for slightly different hardware. I can't customize it -- for a box which expresses how 'cool' you're supposed to be they all look really similar (you can't think different if everyone is on a Mac).
I don't use Microsoft Windows because I can't fix it -- most people aren't programmers, but the fact that simply knowing one (or being one) can get a bug fixed is awesome. I can't use it -- I can't work without multiple deskops and sloppy focus. Its just too painful.
I use Linux because I can do anything. I can do just about anything I want. :-)
