So, as seen as I just put Ubuntu onto my PC upstairs, thought I'd see your views on it.
My view currently, Linux is a lot more stable than all Windows versions plus it's free, you can run a lot of the programs through WINE on it as well. While Windows has the monopoly of the computer world, so controls the manufactors in a way, limiting programs to the Windows systems as most people use these, they should supply Linux versions as well, this would help Linux rise up, also Linux could be simplified in ways, like installing files etc.
Overall though, I prefer Linux as once I get the hang of it, I'll be better off with it, even though the degree I am going for after school is a Microsoft one .
OSX for Macs is the way to go for me. Plenty of software, minus the games, very stable and bug free. Of course OSX is based on Unix.

I use ubuntu exclusively and really like it. I now find it a lot easier to use than windows ever was.
I actually like MS though, I think the thing they did with their developer tools for students was a really neat idea, however I just constantly had problems with the OS, probably downloaded too much pr0n.
Installing stuff is pretty easy, usually only a few commands, or even none if you use the package manager. Try some of these if you want to get to know some of the commands better
Linux Survival :: Where learning Linux is easy
I had to learn Fedora 9 at college (which included networking a Windows XP machine to a Fedora 9 PC, plus setting up a shared printer which can be used by both machines). What a terrible terrible OS (In my honest opinion, obviously). I'd rather give money to Bill Gates.
I prefer windows!
