On Linux, every call to malloc must be matched with a call to free.

On Windows, millions of calls to HeapAlloc can be matched with a single 
call to HeapDestroy.

Windows prevents impossible-to-find memory leaks, and preserves my 
sanity when working with complex data structures.

I really like Windows. There is even software and hardware drivers for it.

Linux may be free as in freedom, but as Kris Kristofferson noted some 30 
years ago: "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to loose. 
Nothing ain't worth nothing but it's free."
