what's so great about wooden cutting boards?

forgive me if this is a dumb question, but it seems that a lot of professional/highly skilled amateur chefs prefer to use wooden cutting boards. other than aesthetic appeal, how are they better than other materials? i've always used plastic ones because you can put them in the dishwasher.
