I'm a linux guy. The development server for my own web site is Fedora, and I push all code and data from there. However, Windows is the lingua franca of computer OSes right now, and provides the best platfrom for gaming and overclocking and what not. I will be sticking with 7, much as I did with XP during the Vista days, as there is no incentive for me to do so other than to be annoyed. (That's what I come here for. ) If that changes in the future, I would have absolutely no problem living in a linux-centric world.
