1) It's simple to make
2) It's lighter than anything else
3) Needs no pot support, so
4) Windscreen can be shorter (lighter and fits in cookpot).
5) Simple to use. Add alcohol, light, put pot on top, wait about 5 min. for 2 cups water to boil.
6) Almost forgot to mention: In tests down to 30F, I was able to boil 2 cups of water on 3/4 oz. (or less, when above 60F) of SLX alcohol.
Oh, yes, cheap, too. Find a friend with a cat, spend $.50-.79 for food, give away food if necessary, make stove.
