I've tried Linux variants several times, and always ended up getting cross for some reason or another and wiping the HDD and putting on Windows. I've tried Mac on PC (OSx86) and wasn't impressed. My favourite version of Windows has to be XP Pro 32bit, no question in it. I'm slowly going off Windows 7, for a few reasons: The strange file structure. I can never find what I want. e.g Visual Studio saves projects in "My Documents\Visual Studio 2008" in XP. In Windows 7 I always struggle to find it. The logical thing I would think was to click my username on the start menu. I would expect that to open my documents, but no. Instead I am presented with a library, with links to things like My Videos, Desktop etc... There are then 2 folders called My Documents for some reason, one of which I am denied access????!!!! Stupid or what!!I prefer the classic theme, but on Windows 7 it's really slow and crappy.No classic start menu. I can live without this, as I've got used to the new one, but I'd still prefer the old one.If I moved to it, I'd have to teach my family how to use Windows 7. They're not idiots, but it would no doubt frustrate them.It offers no real advantages over XP in my eyes. All applications I need work well with Windows XP, and quicker than they do on Windows 7.But that's just my opinion btw I think it was kind of predictable to find more people prefer Windows on a Windows 7 forums... I can't imagine there are that many mac fanboys on here!
