    Buy a Mac, OSX is much better than Windows and ubuntu is kind of limited on what you can run (though they have windows emulators I think). I'm unfortunately on a PC but would switch to a mac in a heartbeat.

    I have 3 OS installed on my PC

    Windows 7
    Windows 8
    Ubuntu

    I only use ubuntu to login on my paypal and send payment. Windows 7 for work station and windows 8 for gaming. If you are into hacking try backtrack linux :D its the #1 tool hackers use :D
