Well it depends per distro, but driver support for graphics cards (See Nvidia) and having different size monitors really screwed me over big time.

In windows everything just works out of the box. No debugging required.

And for the occasional game, you can play most games well. But that requires extra work to.

And most software they use in school are mostly not on Linux, so Windows and Apple only. That's a big bummer too.

Let's be honest. With ATI/AMD graphics cards multi-monitor, HiDPI setup, scaling, compositing, desktop effects work all just great out of the box.
Who do you think fault it is? No wonder Linus shows middle finger to those companies...
