Operating systems are only a matter of preference. Windows and Linux both require a lot of tweaking to get to work in any reasonable way, but Linux is probably the most obviously inferior system. Mac OS, which has it's own limitations, provides the greatest amount of convenience and generally better tools than those available in Linux (but not always better than Windows), but is a lot more expensive. It shouldn't matter which system you work on, so long as your work gets done.

Both have there ups and downs. When it really comes down to it though basically every OS needs to be configured securely. With default settings on any of wide variety of OS your bound to get owned!

And on second thought, has anybody seen the new Internet Explorer security feature. It's horrible! I just installed Windows Server 2008 on a spare PC of mine and I had a tough time even downloading Firefox. Had to use a external HD to transfer the Setup.exe file. :omfg:

Most users cant understand *nix so they windows or mac is a great option for them.. would you want to teach your grandparents debian o.O

I'd tell them to ask for help in the #debian irc channel.

I would be using linux, but it dosnt run Adobe software well enough so it conflicts with my job. I am a web designer so im a dirty mac user.

I run Photoshop/ImageReady CS2, Illustrator CS, and Flash 8 on Linux (Kubuntu 8.10 "Ibex"), using Wine (v.1.1.9 at the moment). All those apps run fine with no problems except that a few of the app-specific keyboard shortcuts don't work.

Anyway, there's nothing inherently "dirty" about using a Mac. I guess that would depend on what kind of "websites" you're designing with it...

I like Windows.

This doesn't mean that I dislike *nix, and it definitely doesn't stop me having 3 *nix boxes. Both doze and nix have their advantages, strong points, and weaknesses.
