Because I work on a Winderz desktop at work but have to connect to my 
servers via ssh. So terminal enabled programs are better for me.

Because my hardware at home is so old that your average Gameboy has more 
computing power and better graphics.

Because I'm too cheap to pay for much of anything I can't touch.

And mostly because I don't make myself program as much as I want to and 
spend what little time coding actually in the code. Since I claim to 
want to be a programmer I need to do programmer stuff.
