QotD: OS Preference

Windows, Mac, Linux – What's your preference and why?
Submitted by ramblingsbymark.

I prefer Mac as a day-to-day OS/Computer. Not that Windows are bad, I use it everyday for 8+ hours for work, and Microsoft has made developing software on Windows really easy and enjoyable. Apple's Xcode is ok but it is nothing like Visual Studio or even Eclipse. But the fact remains that Windows are not secure, must require running of anti-virus/anti-spyware software in the background, requires constant vigilant to make sure it is not infected, etc. makes using a Mac so much more less stressful and enjoyable.

The last time I tried Linux was nearly 10 years ago and even with these intervening years I still think Linux has not evolved into the point where any consumers can install and use it without knowledge of *nix.

OS X is really Linux done right.
