This one line probably summarises why you like Linux, you're interested in

Anyone with these personal attributes usually loves Linux, and those who
don't have them, hate it.

Who would, Windows is a waste of time and resources, in my opinion. I
personally have not had Windows on a machine of mine since 1997.
