That kind of looks like a bit of a negative start even though it's just a joke - so I'd better set the record straight.

I'd prefer to use Linux, if I could, and if:
1. It had the same need for the command line as Windows, ie none, until you want to dig deep under the hood.
2. If my software had a version that worked on it.
3. If it had the same interoperability, ie with hardware, file formats etc.

No arguments that Linux is the best server OS by a mile. And the best desktop OS for security.

I can't tell you how much I'd like to see a usable Linux distro before Windoze becomes so bloated, complex, slow and intrusive that it's no use for basic business use.
