It's intuitive, it's highly customizable about what apps you want, it works well with macOS quirks (like showing what programs are open even when all windows are closed), the autohide works well if you feel it occupies too much space (even though you can also adjust size to the milimeter) and you need some app launcher because the menu bar is for menus (duh).

Yeah, it's similar to the windows taskbar.

It shows all the applications that are either pinned to the dock or are currently running on the left side. Any windows that you've minimized are on the right side.

By default, it's always at the bottom of the screen, but you can have it only appear when you move your mouse to the bottom of the screen, to maximize available space.

The classic Windows taskbar, with the setting "Never collapse" is by far superior to the dock. At a glance you can see all your open windows, not just open applications. You can select the precise window with one click.
Compare this to macs, where you have to first click the icon, then click the window.

If you collapse your Windows windows then they're basically the same though

Basically, I use only chrome, a file browser and the screenshot tool. That's what I have the dock for, it's a quick launcher for these 3.

The launcher on the other hand has very low reveal sensitivity and only in the top left corner, nearly impossible to open with the cursor,
so it only opens with the win key, and when the launcher is open it kinda blurs the screen and it's more like the app drawer in android, you can't even see the open apps on the taskbar.

And when I have to change the application I don't do it on the taskbar neither the dock but I have set the bottom left hotcorner to show all windows or i hit the touchpad with 3 fingers and it swaps the focused app with the last used one.

I use it for work setups.

For example, typing 'code' might open a terminal, Emacs, and Stack Overflow (for example), and arrange the windows thanks to a Hammerspoon plugin, all at the same time.

I also use it for online dictionaries: type 'enfr book', and it'd spit out 'livre'.
