I only use open source software!
I feel strongly about OSS, but willing to compromise
I support OSS but use a variety of tools
I don't really care about OSS, just what tool is best
I hate OSS but am hanging out on an Ubuntu forum anyway
Some other view that can't be summed up in a poll
Honestly I'd like to use nothing but OSS tbh, and I will use it if it gets the job done even if its not quite as flashy....
However I will use Proprietary software where I have to, if the OSS wont do the job I need, which unfortunately is in a few areas... but nothing that makes me use windows or mac thankfully at all....
I selected "I support OSS but use a variety of tools". I'd prefer to use OSS when I can (especially XFCE), but I'm gonna use whatever works best for the situation. I've found that taking an RMS stance on OSS is a turn off and can push people away who may be interested in FOSS. It's hard to promote Open Source with a Closed Mind.

I can't say my experience jives with either of y'all's. The only operating system I don't have to bash around a bit to make it do basic things is Android. Things are more likely to just work on Windows, but they're also more likely to come with extra-special are-you-really-really-really-sure dialogues, so it seems like a wash to me. = )Originally Posted by nothingspecial
