dude,

i soooooo hate windows.  the viruses drive me crazy and the incessant notifications and "5 software patches downloaded" craziness every other day made me give up on windows.

so...i would like to use linux/x-windows/etc..  but, having been forced to use them for school for so long when they weren't mature...i hate them too. 

so the compromise is i guess evil apple.  apple is a "steal your money" company, but its stuff works; few viruses and you get the functionality of windows.  i also really like the mail handler (i so HATE windows live!!) and installing software and routine stuff like just ejecting a flashdrive is soooo much simpler.

assalamualaikum

"Recently I found myself struggling with a question I should easily have been able to answer: Why would anyone want to use Linux as their everyday desktop (or laptop) operating system? It's a fair question, and asked often of Linux, but I'm finding it to be a question I can no longer answer with the conviction necessary to 'sell' the platform. In fact, I kind of feel like a car salesman who realizes he no longer believes in the product he's been pitching. It's not that I don't find Linux worthy; I simply don't understand how it's ever going to succeed on the desktop with voluntary marketing efforts. What do Linux users need to do to replicate the marketing efforts of Apple and Microsoft and other corporate operating system vendors? To me, it seems you don't sell Linux at all because there isn't supposed to be one dominant distribution that stands out from the rest. Without a specific product to put on the shelf to sell, what in the world do you focus your efforts on selling? An idea?"

Microsoft has reportedly moved to prohibit employees in its Sales, Marketing, Services, IT, and Operations Group (SMSG) from using company funds to purchase any products produced by Apple. The company had already barred staffers from using expense allocations for competing smartphone platforms, however the new guidelines explicitly note that Macs and iPads have been added to the list. 'Within SMSG we are putting in place a new policy that says that Apple products (Mac & iPad) should not be purchased with company funds,' an alleged letter distributed to staff reads."

Salaams,

I use Android (its foundation is X-nix) the most. And Android now works on laptops too.

I flashed Android on a usb and made an installer out of it, and then used it to boot my (mini) asus netbook.
