Operating System of Choice.

I err toward the Debian-based distros mainly because I'm more comfortable with APT than anything else. And I like Linux-based OSes because I don't have a bunch of shit piled on top of me. I don't have the money to buy a new fucking computer every damn year. And even without streamlining, Ubuntu is WAAAAAY less taxing than XP/Vista/7.

if it's XP/Vista I'd say Linux > Windows
if it's Seven, of course Windows > Linux
I have moved from windows to Linux in 2006, worked with Linux for 3 years, completely formated my partitions to ext3. In 2009 I got a mac book pro and discovered Mac OS X for the first time.
what can I say ?
if you can afford a Mac, go for it, it's worth it's price, the OS goes perfectly with their nice hardware, and do not run windows on it !
if you can't afford a max, get windows 7, I must admit, it changed my opinion about micro soft products, for the first time in years, they made something worth using, windows 7 is very stable and rarely bugs, performance is nice, slightly slower than XP but way better than Vista. (during holidays, I play the whole days, and download the whole night, so I don't reboot my laptop often, last time the system was running for 3 weeks, no crush no bugs, just windows gadgets crushing every 2 - 3 days, Windows 7 Ultimate x64)
if you need an OS that will oblige you to configure every part of it, compile it's drivers every-time, fix every aspect of it by code, and you do not mind all this, you can get Linux.
