It's all about the apps.
I've noticed a few programs dont work on ubuntu that work in windows but then again i've had ubuntu since 2011 and havent had malware etc infecting my machine. Being infection-free since 2011 is something that makes it work for me so what's a few apps when I have security? Priceless.
As far as apps go Microsoft is bigger and dominates the market hence apps are made to work with windows. That's not the fault of ubuntu and doesnt detract from that at all.
I dont miss windows.

Be inspired by phreaking.
And don't touch the Linux hat!
Linux user #572109
Ignore a vulnerability in Interent Explorer since version 6 - 11

Dell laptop | Intel iCore 3 2.1Ghz | 4 Gb mem | Win 7 + Trusty
I just don't like having to use PuTTY or WinSCP to ssh/scp files to-and-from the server. I like it being included (in Linux).
Cause me to use profane language out loud!
run notepad++ natively, i make do with geany now days
it does work in wine, but that means installing all the 32bit libraries for a single program
i have never seen linux bsod, should point out i have had it lock up and not even allow REISUB to work a few times
consumes days from running virus scans, defraging, and cleaning the regestry
tick me off by not letting my copy/paste using the lazy linux method (highlight text -> middle click)
learned about that from using DSL (the distro)
run google earth without being a pita to make work if you can make it work (have not tried it in months, maybe it works now)
better syntax highlighting
Windows is good for wasting tons of my time and money. Although I do make some money back by repairing it for others, especially Rootkits.
I have been using M$ products since MS-DOS, then Windows, and in 1994 Linux. Since then I highly prefer Linux but at times would use Windows just to play some games. Usually (like now) I have a dual-boot, rarely even starting Windows except to keep it updated.
NOTE: As of June 2013, more than 95% of the world's 500 fastest supercomputers run some variant of Linux, including all the 44 fastest.
