    It's as stable as the user can control the OS. WinXP is very stable as long as you don't install anything on it and don't connect to the internet.

    I only use Unix (Solaris) on servers at work. Rock solid.
    On desktop, I have to use XP Pro (no choice because of apps).
    I prefer FreeBSD over Linux myself.

    You asked about stabliity what, that's the price to pay. If you stablity, and you want security, then don't do anything to it.

    No Bridge, Camera Raw, Photoshop & Lightroom. GIMP is trash.

    Install some games, you wont be bored.

    Hi,

    I have never had much luck with Linux.

    I have tried various versions on occasion over the past couple of years, but

    there was always something that did not work one way or another.

    Till now.

    I am running Mepis on my second computer and it runs very well

    Cool
    Time, is an effortless construction :)
