Same goes to Ms if they are less greedy. Imo Win XP is by far the best OS that Ms had, but they decided to kill it.
I switched over to Ubuntu Linux. never looked back. approx 100% virus proof.
Fast and no bloatware. Very stable system. almost NEVER crash...
Unfortunately (or fortunately?) it is also Game-proof. I don't like WINE or other VM/Emulators either...
Actually my problem with Linux is that its too fragmented to have anything stable or sustainable.
Maybe with the exception of Redhat. I think OSX is the best bet if you want to go to *nix route.
Hardware is another matter.. but I'm tempted to build a Hackintosh.
running linux on server ? yes.
running linux on desktop ? not in million years.
