It's Windows.

'nuff said.

Linux > Mac > Windows

Unless you hate really stupid, nearly false advertising. Then it's

Linux > Windows > Mac

Unless your purpose in life is gaming. Then it is

Windows > Linux > Mac

Unless your purpose in life is graphic design. Then it is

Windows/Mac > Linux

Unless you are freaking uber, then it is

Linux > Windows/Mac

Mac has the most false advertising.

Linux and Windows = tied

I don't find Linux to be particularly good.

Yeah, it totally sucks.

It is faster, uses less resources, is more secure, is free, and is completely customizable, from compiling your own OS using LFS, to minimalist builds like Arch/ArchBang/CrunchBang, to Windows clones, to Mac clones.

Totally sucks.

Please tell me what you do that actually makes an appreciable speed difference. I've never noticed a massive change when using Linux.

But I already paid for Windoze.

I've never seen a good Windoze clone. lol@LFS, to get that working you need to have lots of free time and actually know what you're doing, and when you're finished you probably won't even have anything that good. Anyway, my real problem with Linux is drivers. Also, games.

Totally sucks.

Everything. Boot time, time to open any program, opening new tabs, loading web pages... pretty much everything. Windows is a resource hog. I can actually load all the programs I normally use into RAM during boot, and still use less total RAM than Windows uses right at startup.

Source? This is probably true.

Source: the internet. Here's one...
http://www.pcworld.com...

There are something like 1 linux virus for every 1000-10,000 windows viruses as well.

But I already paid for Windoze.

Next time you buy a computer, or upgrade your OS, you're going to pay for Windows again. Just because you already paid for Windows doesn't mean that Linux being free isn't an advantage.

Linux is actually pretty good for drivers. My Windows Only USB Wireless Network doohickey worked perfectly with just plug-n-play in all 3 of my distros.

As long as you don't try to use a new distro on old hardware, you'll be fine.

Yes, you need to know what you are doing for LFS. That's kind of the point. You need to know what you are doing to compile your own OS. Again, that's the point, with linux you can use a premade system, or build a completely customized lightweight system from scratch.

Another benefit, I can carry my OS around with me on a 256mb USB stick.

Totally sucks.

Oh, and here's one example of a Windows clone

IDK, my Ubuntu is a lot slower than my Windows 7.
