this has probably already been stated, but one of the advantes for me is I know exactly what hardware I put together. If someone else builds it sometimes I have to do some research before I can identify what drivers I need. I use Linux all the time, so I'm a little picky about what hardware I get. I wouldn't have to be this picky if things like Winmodems didn't exist. But I'm used to it.
