Although this may be a reason... my primary reason is that I am (deep-down) a programmer. I like to write code, be able to view and change code, and even more -- I like my environment to reflect the mindset of a coder. The *nix environment really was written to reflect the mindset of programmers -- which does make it confusing to some people.
But I like being able to program everything from a small shell script to whatever else I need. I don't want to rely on the window manager doing things the "right" way -- because often someone else's right way won't work for me.
