i have nothing of importance to say here seeing how i'm just a snobby Mac user and thus my opinion is bias :)

Oh, and did i say FreeBSD (OBSD and Solaris too) is the only OS that belongs serving on the net <3

Because it is :)

I currently tri-boot
Windows 7 Ultimate
Mac OSX Leopard (iAtkos V7)
openSUSE 11.3

I honestly like them all evenly, each have their benefits. This is the reason I have not uninstalled any of them, aside from then having to repartition. I must admit, I do use Windows the most. This is because all of the program discs I have are for Windows.

The linux is the quickest and seems most reliable.
Next in reliability is Mac
Then finally Windows, the most unreliable of them all.

I am slowly pushing myself away from Windows, but my Adobe Creative Suite is only for Windows so I a stuck with it until my next subscription.
