windows if you want simplicity linux if you want knowledge and power.
Windows of course. Never tried Linux before
I'm not really sure about this... Windows is pretty confusing too (for me, at least). I never know what's really happening on my PC. What's this program doing? Why does this program launch at startup? What's this service for? Why is it running? Do I need it? What will happen if I stop it?
I love playing with Linux but I'm stuck on Windows because of two things:
- Microsoft Office which LibreOffice is not yet fully compatible with. MS Office is almost a must for my study and work.
- Games which have no Linux versions.
And the third:
- My laptop came with genuine Windows 7.
I do have PCLOS 2010 installed on my desktop. Loved it but couldn't use it because I needed MS Office 2010 which I own a genuine copy of.
For those who do not require Windows specific programs, I believe Linux distros such as Ubuntu (OK, the latest version and beyond will be shipped with Unity, not GNOME, so not sure how good it'll be) and PCLinuxOS would be the best for everyone.
