    EDIT: I don't keep OSX around, and I never did. Too much of a hassle with Bootcamp...

    I'm an IT manager and sometimes I need to have access to various Microsoft products.
    Also some of the websites that I've been with for years use Shockwave player for things. While it annoys me, there is little I can do about it. At times I need windows. 99% of the time I forget it's even available though. Recently I've seen a few sites that have made new video players and they support linux nearly perfectly. I wish all site designers would wake up and realize that they are alienating a substantial user base if they don't support linux.

    I have no need for Windows, except for the occasional video editing...I have yet to find a decent video editor for Linux. Other than that, I am 99% Linux.

    I use Windows only to test software. I like to make things cross platform, so I need to be able to test on Windows.

    I haven't booted into Windows in a few weeks.

    kdenlive is decent for me. I do not use Windows at all. Linux meets all my needs in a computer. I play games like Urban Terror and Nexuiz. Not a huge gamer.
