I have a work-issued MacBook Pro running OS X, a laptop running Windows 7 and a desktop running Ubuntu 11.10. That makes me lucky enough to have the big three operating systems at my fingertips.
I work from home, and the bulk of my work is done on the Ubuntu Linux desktop. Here's a breakdown as to how I use these three machines.
- Primary computer for work and play
- Where I listen to music, podcasts, update this blog and make a living
- My preferred OS
Mac OS X
- When I'm not at my desk, I go mobile with the MacBook Pro
- When I need Photoshop or to attend a GoToMeeting session, I return to the Mac
- It feels solid, looks great and is pretty fast, but I haven't yet fallen in love with this OS
- My son loves this laptop, because he can play his Windows-only games on it
- Otherwise, Windows bugs me...
I'm very curious as to which OS you use at home and work, and which is your preference. Windows, Mac or Linux?
