I use the OS my computer comes with. I make it do what I want. I use computers until they croak. They’re silicon dust when I’m done with them.

I’ve hesitated switching to Linux for decades now.  I was a fan of Minix in the early Linux vs Minix debates on Usenet (who remembers Minix?  I do!)

I always stuck with Windows because I have to informally support a LOT OF PEOPLE who are just regular computer users using Windows… and so I have to stay close to their problems by having them myself and solving them :P

But if I had the luxury of expressing my inner nerd-dom, I’d be running awk instead of batch files, emacs instead of Notepad… I’d be having a blast.  Also, the collection of Windows-based tools I’ve collected through the years, I’d have to do-over in Linux, which to me, is reinventing the wheel.  To me, a computer’s a computer’s a computer. I make it do what I want.

If my next computer comes with Win10, I use Win10.  If it comes with Linux, I use Linux, etc.  But for now, I’ll stick with Win7.  Came with this one.  Win2K came with the one before that.  95, the one before that.  I use computers until they croak.  They’re silicon dust when I’m done with them. You should see the keyboards.
