I use open-source software whenever possible. For me it just feels natural to want to use software where the code is open for anyone to verify or improve it. Or for translating the interface.
If I wanted to encourage someone to join the community of #OSS users, I would highlight its benefits:
- openness/transparency - know how the SW works
- collaborative power of the community
- possibility to join in and provide your skills for the common good
- sense of belonging
And not the fact that it is gratis in the most cases.
