I'm using Windows 7 Professional 64-bit on this laptop.

On very, very rare occasions I use my boyfriend's laptop... it is a Windows XP.

Sure, there's less % of Bitcoin users, even lesser % of Litecoin users, technology is quite difficult for many people...

Mac IS Linux. Here's my hierarchy on how good the Operating systems are for personal use, yes I've used all of them:

Windows > Mac OS > [Insert 500 other items here] > Linux > Bios Menu > Blue screen of death

Rating of each as a personal computer:
Windows: 10
Mac OS: 8.5
Linux: 1

Windows: Best operating system ever. Has unlimited capabilities if you know what you're doing.

Mac OS: Very good operating system. It is a very easy to use personal computer that has the same software as Windows while offering the same 'open source' strengths as Linux.

Linux: No point in this as a personal computer OS. Mac IS Linux. Same terminal, same commands, same potential, everything is nearly the same except Mac has much better support, usability and stability. For mining and servers though Linux is used a lot, so it's not a bad usage for that. However, as a personal computer, Linux is a no.

Sorry Pedrog, I've used both of them and honestly can't tell any external difference between them as a personal use OS. The only main differences is that Mac can run things like Photoshop while Linux you have to go through Wine, and sometimes that takes days to set up to run properly.

Here other people in a thread that agree with me that there's basically no difference between the two: https://forums.freebsd.org/viewtopic.php?&t=1852

I'm not saying there's no advantage to using Linux, there is, in servers and mining. I just would not use it as a personal OS, even installing something so basic as 'Flash' for web browsers can take a beginner hours to set up, forget installing something like drivers as the drivers for 2 of my computers were not even available.

Sorry it's just true that OS X is taking over Linux users: http://www.wired.com/wiredenterprise/2012/08/osx-killed-linux/ . Try it out at an Apple store and use the Mac OS terminal, use some Linux commands, find out they work, play with it more, and voila, you realize it's same thing except you can run Photoshop.

I keep hearing people having trouble setting Photoshop to work in Linux. But the thing is Photoshop should not work in Linux at all. Wine is just a clever compatibility layer.
I am not sure if some people realize that Photoshop is an application designed for Mac and Windows only.
It obviously has to do with the very low market share that Linux has.

Linux is not inferior/superior to other OS, is just a different OS for different people.
Personally I find Linux to be more simple to understand and use because is a transparent OS, and you have access to everything, endlessly versatile and customizable.

So, do I say that Linux is superior because of that? No...not really, all I say is use the system that fits you best.

The same thing is just apparent, while they do share UNIX commands (common legacy) if you go deeper the similarity ends.

Well, if you are satisfied with and already feel at home in W7 I doubt that is worth to go Linux.
But as a curiosity yeah, why not.

using windows feels so.. vulnerable to me. with all that NSA spying, i prefer to switch to a free-based o/s.. at least part time. im considering the switch to linux, but how complicated is it to use?
