Well, I use Linux... I haven't had to purchase any software. I haven't hard to purchase any OS, and I haven't had to purchase any OS upgrades. And the hardware cost was about 1/2 of what an equivalent Mac would have cost me.

And as an added bonus, I don't have to put with AppleCare when I need support. And having dealt with AppleCare in the past, I can say they are the among absolute worse customer service experiences I have ever had in my life with any company.
