Ohhhhh... Damn I'm slow! Lol. I just always assumed we had a Mac Sub-section. Now there is actually an official place for people to bash Macs. Great!... I think? :\

Yes I would have to agree Windows 7 is pretty nice, I've gotten to play around with a few different builds, the build specifically for Developers is quite nice. But I just can't get over the terrible security of the Windows OS, especially with the current string of rather nasty viruses making the rounds these days.

I prefer to stick with Linux and OS X.

Being the go to guy for everyone in the family, I got fed up of reinstalling windows on my mother-in-law's system for the 2nd time since August.

Installed Linux Mint ... I hope this will result in less tech support calls concerning unwanted porn showing up

Hahaha yes I have to field those calls from my family all the time, but it's really because they keep using those facebook apps and going to sites to download silly programs. I tell them not to but they don't listen.
