People are still taunting about this like schoolyard infants?  Well, here's a 
few reasons for you that apply to my case, Johnny boy:

(1)  I work in a scientific field and a specific laboratory that uses data 
analysis software for which there are only Windows versions.  I used Linux 
exclusively prior to joining this lab.  I'd rather not quit this job because of 
a Linux snobbery affliction.
(2)  Gaming.  I have a Windows machine at home because I like to play modern 
video games.  Good luck trying to get them to run on WINE, which is a cheat 
anyway if you're a Linux purist.
(3)  There's nothing wrong with having a dual boot Windows/Linux system for the 
sake of convenience.  I'm not going to waste time booting into Linux just to 
write scientific documents if I'm already in Windows.
