Instead of "Windows or Linux", my short answer is "Windows and Linux". I prefer my PC to be able to dual boot into either of the systems.

When I need just browsing, Linux is my preferred choice. There're freeware products available for Linux only that's when I will go to. In some cases, the Linux system works best when I need to connect my PC to Android devices too. Other than these cases, I'll boot into Windows on the same PC.

Chalet OS comes with lookalike themes for both Windows 7 and Windows 8.

There are also some useful video clips including how to dual boot with Windows 7 and how to theme it to look like XP.

But do not remove Windows if it is legally installed just for the sake of it. There ARE still things that it is useful for.
