How about the fact that in many cases the Linux versions of those proprietary but free applications are inferior to their Windows counterparts? I know that the Linux version of Skype, for example, is a couple of releases behind the Windows version and as such doesn't have the same features. Last time I looked at it Google Earth for Linux was still using WINE (admittedly this was a while ago and things may have changed) and didn't have GPS support.
