Help me understand “why a Linux DAW”.

Hey everyone. This is my first post here, so consider this me “feeling this one out.” I’m not here to bash any companies in any way shape or form, which I know can be easy to do.
I’m kind of a re-emerging audio engineer / musician who has a lot of legacy digital hardware. Lots of it may be bound for classifieds sites or the Goodwill. But I’m also studying for my LPI 010-160 Linux Essentials exam and am intrigued more than ever with Linux and it’s seemingly endless flexibility. I’ve also been slightly exposed to Reaper, though would not consider myself ready-to-go with that DAW yet.
I’m a former Apple Supervisor, so I own a lot of Apple products and have been using Logic Pro X for years. I’m also a former Pro Tools certified operator, but fell out of Digidesign/Avid due to their high cost of ownership. Once apple gave me a copy of Logic Pro X as an employee, I was hooked and effectively cut all ties to Pro Tools.
I do like Apple for a lot of reasons, but lately the pro/con scale is shifting towards the negative a bit. I can usually justify why Apple would make a decision, but these last couple of years has become tougher to uncover some of the reasoning behind their actions.
