I don't know, and I don't care - each has his/her own preferences. I just "protested" against not rational arguments (e.g. "you cannot get decent power for a X99 @ SFF).
I have a s2011 X79 full ATX board, a pretty big case to go with it, but I feel I could make the switch to a 5820K on a ITX x99, and once 16GB UDIMMs are available, get a dirt-cheap CM-110 and a 120mm AIO, for an almost seamless transition from my current rig. That's why I won't get it probably - I think ITX is cute and great, but I need to wait a generation or two more. Till then, I will be swapping GPUs and probably adding SSDs for those huge new games =)
Others with the wish to go SLI/CF, need to run @ 4K with all goodies on and high Hz monitors, external sound or other cards, crazy overclock for benches and whatnot, might indeed be limited by ITX or even mATX.
