I made the thread about Windows VS Mac, completely leaving out Linux. I always viewed Linux as such a very small community (though I've used it in the past myself). But that did get me thinking sure its open source so you have benefits of free software. But is it truly worth the hassle to you. I mean working with the windows emulators and everything, is it worth the trouble. What does Linux have that Windows or Mac doesn't? I mean Linux has open source software much of it I find useless or just not pleasing. I used Open Office and that experience doesn't compare to the experience of using Microsoft Office to me. But then again that's my point of view, whats yours?
