It's been explained countless times so if you don't see it at this point, its because you don't want to. Some people like the community features and Origins suck while Steam has good ones. Some people like having their library centralized. Some people like Steams great sales while Origins are fewer and there are far less products available. The list goes on.
Origin is a really half assed client with few redeeming features (per product installation directories, no need to run client to run most games) that EA just kind of put out there and hasn't done much with. They could have been Sony with the crazy game share/video streaming stuff, they could have put real effort into community features and so on. The trouble is that they didn't really do anything to win people over.
