Everything mmckenna said plus the fact that DMR repeaters are a lot simpler to network than P25 systems. DMR has really taken hold in the commercial world because of the benefits over analog coupled with how economical they are compared to P25.

That being said, I enjoy P25 and DMR but also good ol' analog still. I'm involved with my state's Dept. of Emergency Management as a volunteer amateur radio operator and we have some digital voice capabilities but 99.9% of what we do is still analog, completely on amateur frequencies (we let the state use state radio systems).
How many radios can one man own? Don't ask stupid questions.
