The debate itself is retarded. I see no problem with a discussion of the pros and cons of various OSes, but the content of the debate as it stands is just dumb. If it works for you, good on you; no need to get all preachy and shit like those holy wars usually end up doing.
Personally, I’m happy enough with XP for the time being. I’d like to change to Linux (specifically my HD install of Knoppix) as my primary, but it still lacks equivalents to a couple of the main apps I use for work. But to be honest, unless you like getting under the hood and geeking out, I see no big reason to install Linux at all. I just like it because it’s a fun toy to play around with, and it’s cheaper to update.
As for OS X, it does look like a good option to me too. Certainly more draw than Linux. Only problem is that it requires much more investment to switch to OS X from Windows than it does to Linux. The whole “buying a brand new, more expensive computer” thing just for the sake of playing with a new OS seems like a waste of time and money. If there were a version - even crippled - available for PCs, even just for a test run before the full commitment, I’d be more keen.
Once I get around to it, though, I’m looking forward to playing around with Syllable OS to see what that’s like.
Tangentially - the Linux users I’ve known have generally been pretty anti-MS, but not to the point where they try and convert every Windows user they come across, except when a holy way breaks out. Mac users, on the other hand, have a much less stellar history with me. I’ve only known a handful, but only one wasn’t a Mac Zealot, ranting and raving at every opportunity about how much better Macs were than Windows. That’s probably done more to put me off getting a Mac than any practical reason.
