Why do we bother with Debian then? We can all just use Windows, right?

You have to keep reminding your government that you don't get your
rights from them; you give them permission to rule, only so long as
they follow the rules: laws and constitution.

Maybe because Debian has some other advantages?
Not everyone chose Debian just for political or religious reasons.

Are you sure about this? On at least two occasions I had experienced how it
doesn't work out of the box - once when installing it (everything went
well up to
the point of copying files to hdd - Windows 7 couldn't detect drivers
for DVD and
as such installation couldn't proceed), and now when my brother is starting his
PC while I'm connected to net (it wrongly assumes that I'm router).
I really don't see how it is "works out of the box".
