Not much experience with Mac units but I've used Linux but it doesn't support all of my games and graphics work, so Winders it is! I like it just fine and have very little trouble with it.

Linux is amazing if you've an old system (with say 2GB RAM) that you just want for say browsing but yeah agreed things can get difficult if you're wanting nvidia graphics cards working to a high spec or wanting support for gaming. 乂º◡º乂

Yes, I run top of the line NVIDIA cards and Linux wouldn't run my beta test games. This PC I have is just 6 months old and works great!

It's a shame love, I run a Linux system (LXLE) that I've set up to look like XP hehe. To be honest I've never needed anything better than XP was and the way it was set up (like vista and 7 after) was what I'd grown use to.

As was Vista IMO...I didn't even use Windows at all because of Vista (Vista did replace XP right?).

That was a primary reason I gave Apple a try.

I run Windows 10 but have the drive partitioned with 100 gig dedicated to Linux. That way, when I boot up, I can change the option of running Windows or Linux. (I did that in case I have a major crash on Windows. I can still go into Linux and access all my data)

I take it if Windows fails you'd go into Linux OS and pull important files from the Windows partition over to the Linux system Jim?

Yep. Years ago, I had a two terabyte USB drive with about 1500 movies on it that failed to open. The only option it gave me was to reformat the drive. I switched over to Linux, the drive opened right up and I copied the movies to a new drive. Then I reformatted the drive and moved the movies back.

Yeah I've had a few harddrive problems in the past I could have probably solved like yourself has if I'd of known about Linux systems sooner Jim.

I actually started using Linux on older machines that still had either XP or Vista running on them as they became obsolete.

I bought a (too expensive) Macbook back in 2007...It was OK until Apple stopped supporting the last OS that the laptop would handle.

Couldn't get any Linux to run on it...Gave it to Best Buy recycling program after it was 7 years old.

Went back to Windows with an ASUS laptop running Win 7...It's 8 years old this month, running Win 10 fine. Never had a problem with it.

I also have a Chromebook which runs only the Chrome OS. It also works good for online stuff, even though I'm not a Google fan.

Never tried Linux...Would like to learn a little about it.

Well I gotta admit I'm no expert with Linux OS but for an OS that runs everything straight from installing I've found 'Lubuntu' works well with PC's and 'LXLE' works well on laptops.
You can try these systems out to see if they work on your hardware before you actually go installing them too.

To be honest, I don't remember any other OS I worked with. I use whatever my office says we must use. I don't do much that's complicated, so I just get used to whatever I have to.

I've mostly used Windows. We now have Windows 10 on most of the PCs/laptops at home, with a Windows 7 laptop floating around somewhere.

I'm sure Macs are awesome, but they cost too much.
