Well you'd probably maximize a window to declutter your workspace.

In Windows, I have an always visible start bar... top row is Quick 
Launch ala OS X's dock, and bottom is running programs so I can switch 
quickly with either mouse or keyboard.  I always run Windows programs 

On OS X and every other OS... I never run maximized.

It's probably because, at least on Mac OS's, of the one menu bar on top 
versus attached to each window.
