My current favorite OS is Ubuntu (Using KDE UI) It does have more limited support. but in most cases Linux has an alternative that is free and just as good as the popular windows counterpart..... well... except my dear Photoshop
I like it WAY more then gimp.
I also use Nuendo and Cubase for music production so I really can't go Linux.
Linux is so much nicer to use than Windows. So much less hassle to update.....none of this go to windowsupdate crap.
just a few command lines in Konsole and it's done. Linux is constantly improving all the time as well.
Windows update are mostly for Security leaks. Linux uses way more ports than Windows but it don't get viruses.
Only 1 major problem with linux is kernel panic which is rare. I don't think I ever had that happen to me when I was using Linux.....That was a long time ago now though.
