Yes, if you're used to (and have spent hours learning) an app that does
all you want, why would you want to learn another one, with a different
design philosophy and different (maybe inferior) feature-set?

Most people have ROI on their minds. If spending all this time learning
Linux and this new app is just going to bring me to the same level of
functionality that I already have, why bother?
