Windows or Linux?

A new pointless poll thread

If there's something on your mind that just doesn't seem to fall into any of the other categories, well, it quite likely belongs inside Joe Finneman's marketplace. Think of it as a general store for general discussions!

Windows or Linux?

Postby gimp80995 » Sun Apr 10, 2005 11:38 am

At least this shows some originality.

I prefer Windows, but I do have to admit that from what I've heard, I'd probably like Linux just as well.

What is your preference?

Windows, but only becuase it's the only thing I've ever used.

I've never used Linux, nor do I have any desire to. So I'll have to stick with Windows.

Windows, simply because that's the only OS I've ever used. From Win 95, to Win 98, to Windows XP . . . I don't think we ever made the jump to Windows 2000. Ugh, I still remember the days of black screens and lots of Ctrl + Alt + Del. ](*,)

Those days are still here.

I definitely prefer Linux. At the moment, Mandrake is my favorite distro, although I have obtained Knoppix (have yet to experiment with it) and want to get Xandros. Red Hat is also good. I also want to install Linux on my XBOX. Although Linux is my favorite OS, I have to use Windows most of the time. All my games, and my video editing software all run on Windows. It's most infuriating. I also like DOS. It's still fun to use, because most of my friends are amazed that I know how to use a command line OS. It's not that hard, it's what I started on. Anyway, Linux rocks, but don't try it unless you want a steep learning curve.

Linux. [-( It comes with cooler games than Windows. O:)
(Really I haven't used Linux enough to give an informed opinion.)
