Don't see why you're getting downvoted for stating reality.. I'm a fan of Unix, and it's my primary OS at home, but there's plenty of instances where software only works on Windows. Use the right tool for the job, sometimes that requires running a non Unix OS.

Gaming is still Windows centric unless you're willing to use a console or restrict yourself to older games. DirectX 12 support in WINE? Only just getting started. VR? Non starter for the Rift, and even the 'more open' Vive barely works, and isn't supported well in SteamVR.
