I don't use Linux because of it is free of charge. I use it because it is free of restrictions.
Although, I don't mind using other operating systems (I have to use many operating systems for my work), but I find Linux (Arch) to be the most comfortable.

I have tried Zotero, EndNote, REfWorks and settled on Mendeley. It is not perfect but it is the closest to how I think about references, and therefore works for me. Besides, until my thesis is completed I am not changing applications. There are rumblings that Elsevier is considering buying Mendeley so who knows what I will use in the future.
