Concrete is fine, but certainly has its disadvantages for someone who spends time in their garage, or has it climate controlled. It will absorb fluids and stain (which can actually be a desirable trait if you see snow, as an epoxy surface will not absorb any melting snow/ice, and no matter how gritty, can become slippery - a cheap runner carpet is a popular winter solution for a slippery surface), is cold and uncomfortable to lay on, is difficult to clean, and is certainly a huge point of inefficiency if your garage is heated. It's certainly a durable surface, and perfectly adequate for what many use their garage for, but there is always room for improvement.
