Windows, Mac, or Linux is the question that comes to mind when people go to buy new computers. Now, which one should you use? If you want a bitten apple, an easy-to-use OS with no viruses, or want high-tech graphics editing, GET A MAC!!!!! If you want a semi-buggy OS with good network connectivity and a great range of software (but with 144,000 virus out to get it), get Windows. If you want to get the most secure OS in the world, get Windows Vista. It's more secure than any other OS because its restrictions are so great that nothing goes in and nothing goes out. If you're an internet user, Vista is not right for you. If you are an avid developer, want a FREE OS or if you just want a REALLY REALLY REALLY wide range of choices for an OS (there are over 500 different distributions of this OS), then Linux is right for you.
Personally, I prefer Macs. I'm into video editing and they're right for me. However, for daily use, I use Wolvix Linux in an emulator so I don't have to buy another computer (an emulator, in case you don't know, is a software program that allows you to run a virtual computer inside of another one).
I have moved my blog to Wordpress at theunixgeek.wordpress.com. I will still be checking back periodically on this one as well, though. 19 April 2009
