Flexibility and control. You get to build the software with the options and 
features *you* need. If there is unnecessary stuff, you get to remove it. If 
there is something not there by default, or experimental features that you 
want to play with, you get to add them. If you are so inclined and have the 
ability (I don't), if you find bugs you can have a go at fixing them and 
submit them upstream for approval/inclusion. If those sort of things don't 
interest you, stick to using your pre-compiled binaries on Windows or your 
chosen Linux distribution. Just don't complain here that "x" isn't 
installed/configured by default - talk to the person that packaged it.
