I love linux, but I use it for what it's needed, hosting servers, my wallets etc. But I'd not use anything but Window$ for everything else since it's so simple and easy to use Smiley

Linus is too much work too use.. i'd rather have what i want done and move on to some other task.
many of my cracking tools don't work on Linux either.. AKA: software compat.
Great for hacking Wifi routers though LOL

I am using Windows on my computer. I think Windows is more popular then Linux. We are using Linux for servers and for security. I think that Linux can not catch the virus. Windows is better for home use  Cheesy

That's the problem. You know why is so popular? because:
1)Forced to be installed on computers for years
2)They push developers to do games for windows
3)Push developers to make software
4)They would sell their own mother to make you produce stuff for windows.

Meanwhile on Linux:
1)They don't force you to install linux on your machine, but you can use 1 dvd for like thousand of pc
2)Who makes software for linux is not paid at all, volunteers and donations.
3)Less games, because of point 2
4)You are freely able to mount or dismount linux as you please.

You are absolutely right and I agree with you FanEagle, the obligation and popularity have made a failure in safety windows.

Windows= lazy people/gamers
Linux = who wants to actually customize their system/not lazy/nerds
Well I like more Linux than Windows, but I use Windows because I'm forced to use certain tools that only on windows without wine works perfectly.

can't customize windows ?

when i had my isp tech over he thought i was running linux.
just a hacked up version of win 7

go run OllyDBG on nix lol

Visual Studio ?

since 2000 roughly i grew tired of trying to find programs for linux that can compare to their windows counterpart.

the people who can get away with using it are a niche user.. or simply Web Surfers
people who need to get work done use windows..

last thing i used Linux for was Backtrack/Kali ..for obvious reasons Wink

Windows = PC Gaming, Apps that don't work on Mac, Geekdom etc

Obviously it is Windows.
Linux have so many problems, first one its so difficult specially when one switched to windows to Linux, the system totally changed. Other problem is with drivers. Third one is for me its not compatible with the mentality of common people, yes if you are a professional user and you know how rectify problems in Linux then you may vote for Linux, but for me its Windows.

This are one of the best operative systems that most of the world use them...

I am a Microsoft Windows user, but I am sure that Linux is also a good platform. I never use Linux before, but from what I have heard from the most users I can make some compares:

Windows, especially windows 8 and 10 is definitely the fastest operative system that exist on planet Earth. When I install win 8 for the first time I was really surprised from the speed. The way how you turn on/off the computer was so fast. Also, if you are a gamer, then windows should be your choice. If you are gamer like me, downloading games and movies from torrents, then be sure that you will not have any problems if you use Microsoft. Smiley But, unlike Linux, Windows have a lot viruses that can attack your OS.

So if you like to use your PC for work, then you should choose Linux, but if you want more - Microsoft Windows! Cheesy
