Through your communications with me I know several of you use both Windows and Linux. I thought I would post a few answers to questions you have posed (paraphrased of course)…
What OS do you use most? – “Most” hmm…OK it’s like this…
-I use Windows Server 2003 (because I got it ‘free’ as part of the MS Action Pack program) for a file and print server (3 printers).
-I use Ubuntu 7.04 on my workhorse computer (email, web surfing, etc.). It’s stable and secure.
-On my main rig I use XP, Vista, and openSUSE 10.2. Under openSUSE I do 90% of my music work, 90% of my blogging and writing, and 99% of getting my geek on.
-I use XP mostly for picture work and for research and testing XP and apps, I use Vista only for researching and testing Vista and apps ( I REALLY don’t like Vista).
-My laptop boots XP, Vista, and Ubuntu 7.04 but I spend most of my time in Ubuntu.
-My wife uses XP.
-I don’t play many computer games anymore, they bore me.
Hope that answers that.
Your site is mostly about Windows, why do you use Linux?
Hehe – that one almost answers itself!
I’ve mostly used Windows in the past. I have done job related (still do it as a side-job) computer work on Windows 95-ME, NT4, Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Server 2k, 2k3. I never see the problems in Linux I’ve encountered with Windows over the years.
1 – I’m a Geek and am kinda bored with Windows, l need new things to play with. I have fun with Linux (told ya I was a Geek).
2 – I’m sick and tired of forking out a crap load of money for software and software updates.
3 – Viruses & Spyware ( and see point 2).
4 – I’ll reinstall when I feel like it and I don’t want to call MS and ask “may I please”.
5 – Speaking of reinstall, all the apps are either on the install CD/DVD or are a click away in the repos.
What is your favorite OS?
openSUSE (though I’m a little worried about its future).
