Why install Linux?

Actually there are several Linux applications I would like to run, which require very little processing power and I believe would run just fine.
WikidPad and FreeMind are the obvious ones for me; but I also have a proprietary simulation package that would probably benefit from running slower

Their value to me would because they are always available so using them would lack the friction I currently endure- I have to be at home to use them.
