Linux is ok, but I am no longer a systems engineer and I am too busy to worry about running shell scripts, recompiling apps, and so on. I used to use linux all the time, but mostly for network hacking when I worked as a systems engineer. Also, I have zero interest in unix as a hobby. I like the user experience on OS X. I used to be a certified MSCE, but I hate Windows. Windows sucks.

Its a pity about Unity though. Gnome 2 was just fine. Hardware support is the main issue for me.

Now that's class.
I'm switching to windows.

But, decided to offer my services to anyone who wants to download and run a simple Linux system--I'm not an expert, but have been using Linux for years. There are many experts who will give advice over the internet for free, just in case. Linux does not have drivers for all hardware, but it runs on many PCs. It has a package comparable with MS Office that is quite good. Some people run Linux on an older system, that is too small to run the latest Windows. Best of all, Linux is easy to download and install, and the price is right, $0.

Still putting along, the squirrel hasn't died yet.
