    What OS Are You Currently Using?

    What operating system are you currently using and why?



    I am primarily running Ubuntu 13.10 (Linux). My reasons:

    • No need to have an anti-virus because of how secure Linux is
    • All of the Windows equivalent software I need is free on Linux, eliminating the need/want for me to illegally download shit
    • Have yet to ecounter one problem (unlike the daily I get when running Windows)
    • After a few work-arounds, I now have access to all of the things I normally would on a Windows machine (e.g. Netflix)
    • Coding/Development is a hell of a lot easier using the terminal Vim
    • Key shortcuts/Terminal commands make the whole experience so much easier


    In the event that I want to play non-Linux supported games (e.g. DayZ or Battlefield), which is almost never because I hardly play video games anymore, I can quickly restart my computer (Doing this on Linux is 10 times faster than doing it on Windows) and boot up Windows 7 (I'm dual booted).

    Currently 7.
    I was thinking of 8, but I honestly see no point in it since I don't have a touch screen.
    Emulating the touch with the mouse is like trying to sketch something with a hockeystick.
    It's clunky and inefficient.
