And if your going for whats "new" and "hot", why not just hop on the Windows 7 wagon? It's relatively stable from what I've heard...
Actually, Win7's remarkably stable from what I've experienced.
Got one oddball lockup (under 64-bit) shuffling multiple ISO images back and forth on a 500GB external hard drive. But other than that, no showstopper issues to date.
But here's something truly weird. (At least for me.)
After running Win7 as my primary OS since the 10th of this month, I finally switched back to WinXP-SP3 and Linux (UbuLTS v8.0.4-2) for day-to-day use on January 31st.
But once I did, I discovered that:
1. I no longer like WinXP anywhere near as much as I used to.
2. I now vastly
prefer to use Linux as my primary OS to the exclusion
of XP or Win7.
Prior to my 20-day trial of Win7, my 'affections' were divided equally between XP and Linux.
Now I find myself no longer wanting to use Windows (XP or Win7) at all. Suddenly, both are feeling stiff and inelegant.
Somehow I got turned off to the whole Windows 'experience' despite genuinely liking Win7.
Is that happening to anybody else?
