    A mac is preferably the best option, but I've been using the free Gimp software on my windows vista laptop, but then again nothing beats my photoshop software on my apple mac.

    Mac hands down. Not to give Windows or Linux a black eye, I just seem to have much better "luck" with Macs and OSX.

    I have never used a Mac, but I currently use both Windows and Linux.  My preference is Linux.  Simple access, really fast start-up time, and lots of low to no cost software.  Easy use of blender3D on Linux as well.

    Though I never have the opportunity to use Mac, But I am very comfortable with Windows ans Linux.Both Windows and Linus have their own plus and minus points. First of all if you need free OS and some free software then definitely Linux will be a good choice.On the other hand Windows is the most preferable OS to run some third party softwares and any bugs related to it can be found readily online-since it has a hugh user base and the Microsoft also offer a range of other popular products which are mainly designed to run on Windows.
    For ISP business its always Linux which get more preference over Windows.

    It used to make a big difference around mmm 10 years ago, but the graphics hardware for creating art and design are met by even a cheap white box PC. 
    I had Macs in the 90s and PCs since 2000 more or less. Now as long as you have compatible software you are good to go.
    Sure the Mac OS is pretty, but you pay a premium for it.
