Familiarity is very important. Why do you think that MS has huge educational discounts ?
Get people young and they will want to stick with it.

In a similar way I find MS hard to use - on the rare occasions that I have to. Simply
because I am used to the *nix way of doing things and so that makes MS much harder for me.

I wonder: do I hate Gnome 3 because it is different or because it is really broken ?
I still have not worked out how to get multiple virtual desktops with it.
