Outside the usual community / world domination things?

You might switch to GNOME the same way other people have switched to OS X,
at which point you'll care. You might find it useful as a tool to convert
people using non-free software to Free software. You might decide that it's
an attractive platform to build software on.

You've told me what you're not, but... what are you? :-)
