I guess it comes down to
- technical orientation of IPA: designed with linux/unix in mind, not windows
- open source, so all the default open vs. proprietary points apply:
- no vendor lockin, if vendor decides not to continue the product
you can take the source and do this for yourself
- code can be audited
- code seen by many eyes
