    Windows vs. Linux

    Yes, this might will be another "Win vs. Linux" thread, but i just would like to ask my question.

    What do you guys use for your productive machine and which OS do you prefer?

    I'm currently on Windows and not really happy with it, i sometimes play games, but it also can be done with dual boot.

    I have experience with Linux and also dual boot, but on Windows i really feel a bit unsecure and vulnerable all time...

    So, what do you prefer for productivity? If it's linux, you can also write which distro you prefer (and maybe, in order to keep this discussion up).

    Most of my work is in Window, but surfing the net, I use Linuz AntiX 13.2, which I am running right now, and am testing AntiX 14 anyway I guess that will be its name.

    MX-14 is good to - http://www.mepiscommunity.org/mx

    Mint 17 is fair too.

    Office type work, I use LibreOffice and graphics - Gimp2 . Use in both windows and Linux.

    This is a old 2002 laptop.

    I single boot normally
    But I do have on desktop with 5 partions with Win 7, AntiX, Carolina 1.2 and a couple others on.
    I use grub4dos as the bootloader, found 10 seconds to be to sort of a time, so changed it to 20 seconds.
