I am waiting for microsoft to die a horrific death, may they migrate to phones and leave the desktop world alone.
You've said something about desktop OS deversity before, but I still want to ask you this: Why?

So that Apple can charge us $1000 for their bloody OS? I don't think so! I hate Microsoft as much as the fiercest Linux fan boy, but lay off the kool-aid, man. M$ has done a pretty good job with 7, let's hope 8 will continue this trend.

INdeed Windows 7 is fine, and unless you want to deal with crappy compatibility issues or worse yet a console, Windows is your ONLY choice to game.

At the annual Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, CEO Steve Ballmer announced that sales of Windows 7 licenses crossed the 400 million mark. In June last year, the figure stood at 150 million, and by October, it rose to 240 million. With sales of 400 million license in under two years, Windows 7 is the fastest-selling operating system in history. On a related note, Microsoft announced that 100 million copies of Office 2010 were sold since its launch.

And I'm a happy buyer of one of those Win7 and Office10 licenses. I know a lot of people hate M$ but let's admit Win7 is one of the best OS in history... Render unto Caesar what Caesar's...
