Hi folks!

Just finished building my first mixed rig: 4 Nvidia GPU, 4 AMD. Now it's time to install OS to it and I can't chose one.
Tried to search for "mixed rig os" here, found 0 relevant threads.
So, which one do you prefer and why?

Please don't suggest ethOS, I don't wanna buy before I try. I also prefer to have everything running locally without needing web to access it, so HiveOS isn't an option too. I liked SmOS very much, but setting it to work with a mixed rig is a real PITA, as it's designed for the rigs with GPUs of only one vendor.

So if you know a specialized distro that'll do its job like it should with a mixed rig, I'll be really grateful for a suggestion.
Also if you think generic Linux distro or Win7/10 are the best options in this case, please at least vote, but I'd be grateful for the explanation of pros and cons.

Windows. Because you can't mix Nvidia and AMD cards on Linux.

Wrong. HiveOS allow AMD and Nvidia.
