Computer operating system preference is akin to religion among many self appointed ‘platform evangelists’. People seem to get a savory thrill from having ‘converted’ someone from one OS to another, as if that act alone will open the door to computing salvation.
I find the whole notion of computer evangelism to be ridiculous. It’s a computer. It’s a tool. Use the OS that best fits your specific needs. I do not take part in OS wars. You like Linux. Fine. You like Macs. Fine. You like Windows. What the hell is wrong with you? ;)
In all seriousness, I believe each OS has its own appeal. Linux folks like to have complete control of the entire OS, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Mac folks like to use their computer to get work done, without having to have the computer get in their way. Windows folks like to tinker, too – and play the latest-n-greatest computer games. Hey, whatever floats your boat.
Just don’t try to ‘convert’ someone to your OS. Please.
