    Erisan, explain more about why you feel more restricted using '7? I would like to understand.
    I want to make clear that as in "normal use" I like Windows 7 a lot. It works fine (except my Radeon 9250 is not supported anymore) and I can do my developing work with it; test that multi-platform software compiles and works ok (using GTK+/Qt).

    As a geek Linux gives me free hands to modify the whole system as I like it to be. For example I'm able to install Debian over the network and run Wayland/XOrg with my own XCB-based window manager on it. It's more like having fun and learn about computers and operating systems, discuss with developers about the code and undestand what is going on in projects.
    To me Windows is a huge black box that I'm not able to modify in any sane/safe way.

    I'm doing Linux developing as my full-time job so one could say I'm biased. Well... maybe I am Wink
