Linux Ubuntu with Gnome. Think Amorok is the best music player. But don't like KDE.

I voted linux, Ubuntu specifically. Why? It just feels, looks( after tweaking :) ) and performs better for me than windows xp ever did. Everything i want is in the repositories. In 4 months i have not had a crash, not had to reboot after every install of a program, not had a virus, no spyware. Just a more enjoyable computing experience. I am on my laptop more doing more than i ever did on windows.

My primary OS is Sabayon Linux (using the KDE session). I am gonna put Ubuntu Feisty and Gutsy in vms to keep my skills sharp (I still like Ubuntu, and still wanna use it, that is what vms are for).

I think that was a silly question to ask on these forums expecting a reasonable result. Haha.

"well, over 90% of ubuntu forums members prefer Linux"

Right now I'm a windows user, in a couple of months I'll be a Mac user.

I agree.

Nonetheless, to this (revised) question I can give an unambiguous answer:

My preferred OS is Linux. I used to use SuSe since 6.4 or some such, have been using Ubuntu since Dapper, with decreasing amounts of Windows time.

However, that refers to private use only. At the office, I still have to use Windows. Also, I can not see how I could Linux there because there are quite a few applications which require Windows.
