Name-calling is a very effective method for spreading the idea that
something is evil -- in this case Windows.  Since Microsoft is so much
more powerful than we are, and has many weapons that are not available
to us, I don't think we should feel obliged to tie our mouths behind
our backs.

Contrariwise, pleasant nicknames such as "win" tend to act as support.
That's why we don't refer to Windows as "win".
