Which desktop is better: Windows or Linux?

Other than cost, what is the number one argument you'd use against a Windows proponent in a Linux versus Windows debate?
There really is no debate over which desktop to use, but rather which desktop meets the requirements of the user. Both Linux and Windows have their strengths. The key is functionality; Linux provides a plethora of functionality that is integrated by the distribution vendors into their releases. In addition to being functional, Linux is scalable and performs extremely well. What we'll continue to see in the coming year is two competing workstation desktops but with the victor being the end user.
