I, and many others, use it precisely because it is not Windows.  The day
it clones it, is the day we find something else to use.

It does what we tell it to.  We can find out how it works.  We can
change how it works.  We can fix the problems.  We can customise it.
We're not slaves to malware and anti-malware software.  We're not slaves
to lock-in and data kidnapping by proprietary data formats (I've
personally experienced lock-out of data when programs have become
unavailable).  We don't have to pay ten times over to install it on ten
computers.  We don't have to pay ten times over because ten different
people access the same computer.  We don't have systems that
artificially restrict the number of users that can use it at the same
time.  It's a damn sight more reliable...
