    I prefer Windows. For me, it is very easy to use and it has most of the features that I need. I don't have to worry much about the technical stuff of the OS and just go right into working.

    I've never used Linux so I can't comment on that one. But I strongly prefer Mac OSX to Windows. I have never had a crash on OSX in the 4 years since I switched from Windows PCs. With Windows, crashes were a regular occurrence. No comparison in my view.

    I use Windows, because it is most common and so there are many application available which are not available for Linux and MacOS.

    I use Linux primarily, but I also have a Mac at the desk I use on occasion. Aside from most games, any application you need for a computer is available FOR FREE in Linux - you just have to know where to look.

    More importantly, my computer boots faster in Linux than any other OS. 37 seconds to be exact, and even less time to shut down. Not sure anyone can get Windows to boot that fast.

    I use both Windows and Linux. I prefer Linux because its free, I can get almost any program I need for free or an open-source counterpart for free, no blue screens, faster, and also I run a LAMP server for web development. I mainly use Windows for gaming and Linux for everything else due to ease of use, stability, and as mentioned above the very attractive price.

    I don't use and never will use a Mac unless its somehow work related (highly unlikely).

    The short answer is Windows for daily use

    Servers - Linux all the way

    MAC - not a fan

    I like the ability to customize anything I want.
    I like the freedom of choice it gives for things like the windows manager and file manager.
    I support the philosophy behind it.
