I choose my computer by the problems it can solve for me. That is the prime criterion - problem solving ability. Regardless of what kind of engine it uses to do the task.

If my current PC cannot solve a problem of mine, and I have to obtain new tools, the quality of those tools will affect my decision. I am talking about tools as I see them as a user, for solving my problems. Not tools for solving other problems than mine. And again: The engine driving those tools may be whatever.

When buying a new car, I considered electric models. None of them satisfied my needs for transportation. When I (10+ years ago) needed to upgrade my video editing equipment, I considered a Mac, based on its long-lasting reputation as the professional's choice. My investigation showed that it wouldn't satisfy my needs - the old, professional level tools had been replaced by amateur quality. In several rounds, I have investigated (read: Had operating) Linux machines to evaluate them as alternatives to my current tools. They have failed miserably. The engine inside may be OK, but the user level tools simply do not solve any of my problems that my current tools do not solve in better ways.

Maybe Linux is a good engine. But for me, it is not a good car. I prefer a great car, even if there may may be better engines out there.
