I won't touch Vista with a 10 ft pole though...
I run Vista but I have to admit to using 12 ft poles to type with

I use suse enterprise desktop linux at work. Though I don't really care for it since it seems pretty slow for considering the hardware thats inside, then again that could be the hard drive that's slow... At home I really like using ubuntu 9.04 64bit. it's really REALLY nice for a desktop OS. For my servers I like to use OpenSUSE. Yast2 is so nice to use remotely

I also use Windows XP at home since I love to game from time to time
My vote goes to linux. if I could do gaming as well under linux I'd be 100% linux.

I prefer IRIX.

But if I had to chose, Windows because of gaming and almost guaranteed hardware compatibility.

Hi
Live CD's are fine, but they will not give a slimier experience with performance as installing Linux to the Hard Drive. There is a innovative program called Wubi that installs Ubuntu to a file on your Windows file system, it will give you close to the performance as a regular install with the advantage of not having to doing disk partitioning. Also you run the install from a beginner friendly Windows program.

Hi all,

Just joined the forums!

I'll do my best to contribute to the forums and stick around.

Now for the poll...

I voted for 'Windows'. I personally think linux is a bit better, but since I'm Windows fan, I voted for Windows. I really hope that Win7 will be a good competitor to linux...

I said I don't know. I've tried both. 98, 2000, Xp, Ubuntu, SuSe 9.8-10.3. All have their own pluses and minuses.
