    I'm an avid Linux user and the more I look into the tools of SEO, the more I am thinking about installing Windows on my secondary machine.... Any thoughts?

    EDIT: I'm running LXLE Lubuntu on my primary, Debian CrunchBang #! on my secondary and Android on my two phones.

    Unix is good when performance and stability matters. For UI, compatibility and ease of use, nothing even comes close to Windows. I personally use Windows 8.1 (genuine , lol) for my personal work-station. I think you should, too.

    1. Thanks, I'm considering using it for at least one device.

    2. Are you seriously using ARCH LINUX? Jesus Christ man. I agree on VMware, I just have enough laptops that I can install it on at least one. I can't stand Arch though how do you do it XD.

    Take the time to try it and you'll understand why it's considered the best Linux distro by most people, I know it can look frightening at the beginning but you'll always find someone to help you and once you have it running you'll understand why having total control on your OS is awesome (and AUR is pretty cool too).

    Linux is great, I am a huge fan of it as well, but for GUI stuff, and especially when you need to run mainstream tools, you need a windows box.

    Mostly Windows 7 and OS X if client project demands it.

    I have tried to use Ubuntu several times, and although I like it, I always had problem with drivers.

    Windows 10 - Only had it a few days after upgrading from Ubuntu. The fact I can use most programs again is something I missed. It's crazy how I've been using Linux for so long that I've found Windows to be like a foreign language :/

    I use Windows 10. I absolutely hate it. But not enough to switch to the alternatives.

    Besides I'm a gamer. I'm gonna bitch and whine but in the end I'm not giving up my video games so I'm sticking with Windows.

    Laptop : Linux Mint 17 KDE
    Desktop : Windows 7
    RDP VPS : Windows Server 2008 r2
    Cell phone : Windows Phone 8


    My laptop I'll be switching to windows 7 soon, since I'll be starting college and the websites don't fully support linux.
