    The standard "I don't want to lose my stuff" excuse.

    Of course, you can sympathize with people. We're in an age where computers aren't just something to toy with during downtime, most people practically live on them. Especially notebook users. I myself have mine with me almost perpetually.

    ANY of the above excuses are just rationalization for why they're nervous to make such a big switch. It's like trying to get someone to switch wireless services or go from Dish to cable. Even if it's not perfect, people are afraid of changing what they've known so well.

    They probably know that there are alternatives, the fact is that they know that their current system CAN do what they want, and they're hesitant to chance moving to something that has any possibility of not being able to. Y'know, stick with the devil you know.
