Linux. Period. It's 200 times more scalable and tweakable than Windows. It's free, in contrast with OS X, and gained pace in the OS market year by year. It has several filesystems (EXT2, EXT3, ReiserFS, EXT4, XFS, JFS) to chose from, in contrast with Windows's FAT32 and NTFS. And most of these filesystems support journaling. It boots faster, it's much more safer, runs on almost anything. So yes... I'd rather use Linux.

Although I use both systems Windows XP and Linux on different machines, I do prefer My Linux systems, they just seem to run smoother and without problems and I have never had any problems with Viruses etc either. Its just a shame that Windows (whichever variant) has such a strong stranglehold on the market place that other Operating systems just don't have chance to get a decent footing, although things are changing a bit, especially after the disastrous Vista from Microsoft. If they mess up with Windows 7, then it could be downhill all the way for them.

Linux is the best OS... Since because the Linux OS is not that much user friendly like Windows, common man uses windows mostly.. But if once learned it completely, it will be as easier like Windows. Vista is good but it requires high system configuration to run smoothly.

Linux. A lot of people doesn't like Linux 'cause they say that it's not user-friendly. Actually, the problem lies on the person, not on the operating system. On the first place, Linux is very intuitive. It's just that most people had Windows as their first operating system and that's why they're more familiar with it. When Microsoft releases a new version of Windows, they won't have problems shifting with it because they are already familiar with the OS sequel. If you are born in China, you would find speaking Mandarin/Folkien easier -- and may find English hard to learn. The same goes with OS. If you're an expert in Windows, don't expect yourself to be an expert in Linux. You start again as a n00b. =D

I will go with Windows XP (specifically Professional edition) Windows Vista might out rank XP in the future with fixing more bugs and improving the system itself. I think everything especially Computer & Internet related stuff get better by the time If the maker is listening to his users and working on getting his product to the next level all the time.
