I run a few different Linux distributions using VM software but other than that I'm currently using windows 8.1 and 7.

im too used to windows 7. works well enough for me
though the terminal in linux is a lot better than lolcommandprompt in windows, and it also uses less hard disk space + less of a resource hog compared to windows.

sudo kill $(pgrep current_thread)

Been running Arch Linux for 10 years. Currently using Cinnamon for my desktop DE and XFCE for my laptop DE. I also run FreeBSD on my old desktop for fun, but since it is so slow, I don't do anything with it. I would run it on my laptop, but they sadly don't have support for Intel Broadwell graphics. I only touch Windows computers when I have to fix them for family.

Have used CentOS, Mint, Fedora.

Using the Windows API for programming is a total mess. Functions with 10+ parameters, lots of structures, have to put two 32 bit values together to construct a 64 bit value, etc. .NET is awesome, though.

I don't consider myself a member of a /master race/ just because my daily driver PC runs Linux. We're not living in 1995 anymore: you don't have to calculate your own disklabels, mess with video timings for X11, or track-down all the libraries necessary for a working dev toolchain, then figure-out how to fix the make scripts so they'd actually build.

Ever since Windows 10 came out and barely runs on my laptop, linux became my main boot.

Currently on Linux Mint Debian with KDE4; best distro/GUI combo I've ever used.

My comments on a few others I've tried:

Fedora was challenging yet pretty fun -- "God damnit Yum! What dependencies am I missing now?! I swear I installed all of them already!"
OpenSUSE was a complete sh!t show -- "*-*!! Omg so green! This looks sweet as hell... ... ... fuuu nothing works?!"
Ubuntu was solid but I don't agree with Canonical's commercialism -- "um... Amazon spyware pre-installed? Really? PEACE OUT!"

I highly recommend everyone to set aside some partition space and dual-boot with linux.
It is a highly secure system architecture which is blazing fast.

I just wish to see more third-party software support. Open-source software solutions are amazing but if you're doing something for business or professional purposes you're pretty much forced to use Windows OS or Apple OS.

However, I am LOVING the recent support from the game development community!
Steam, Unity3D, Unreal, ... keep em coming to linux baby!

I can't deny the fact that Linux is indeed the best OS out there. However there's next to no things on it. Steam have a Linux section, but it's pathetic at best compared to Windows. In addition to this Linux doesn't have DirectX that Windows does, so even the few things that are on Linux performs better on Windows.

There's stats to back this up btw, just search steamOS performence vs windows 10 on googlw.

Also you can run Linux virtually or have multiple OS's on one machine....

Ubuntu here.

Satisfied, but I miss Evernote and freeware games.
