Whenever people see me working with Ardour, Guitarix, Qtractor, KDenlive, AMS or CALF, they say: "Not bad, I did not know that! Seems to work nearly the same as good as my Samplitude/NI/Cubase/Reaper" you name it. But of course they do not switch. Because they cannot easily *add* Linux Audio to their arsenal but they have to indeed switch.
People don't switch because they don't need to switch. They're still happily going their music work with stuff on their present OS, meets their needs, so they have no reason to switch.
The ones making money from their music work have the money to pay for software, but they also have the pressure to keep producing. So any effort put into switching to even a different audio app on their existing OS is time spent not making money.
And if someone's not making money to pay for their music software, they're going to somehow magically have money to pay people to write free music software?
Don't want to burst anyone's myth, but getting pro audio stuff working on Windows isn't a simple plug-and-play thing. I have a friend who has been trying to do that, and constantly has to be calling product support for help. So the vaunted commercial proprietary products aren't a whole lot easier than the free Linux apps.
