Probably the former. My current computing situation is that I have 2 Debian 
boxes: one at work and one at home. (FU to those who called me a troll/MS 
aficiado)  I can work on either and then rsync them through ssh. I don't see 
much of a logical reason for me to get a laptop, but a blind consumer and 
technophile in me wants an expensive toy. I can see how some people NEED a 
laptop with MS Office, etc., but I suspected that those laptop users with 
Linuces on them are mostly just following their technophilic desires.
That's why I was curious as to what their motivation was. I hope my answer 
satisfies you.
