Which is also one of the reasons it takes Debian 2.5 years to issue a 
new release!  The number of packages shipped with Linux distributions 
these days is simply astounding, bordering on ridiculous.  I haven't 
touched anything but Linux for over 2 years now, and I'm quite sure 
I'd feel lost elsewhere with commercial system's sparsity of packages!

Regardless of distribution, you get a lot more bang for your buck 
with Linux than you do with any commercial OS!  Now, if we could just 
boost the QA level of all the distributions a little :)
