At least when Windows doesn't work, I can content myself by thinking "Microsoft fucked something up".
With all those other OSes-that-end-in-X it's shit like "Did I build the compile right? Am I missing some library? Where would I go to find that? Or is it just that I'm using a weird fucking OS and the program doesn't know how the fuck to run?"
No thanks, I'll take "mediocre, but predictable and mainstream" over "supposedly superior but mired in confusion and lack of support".
I mean, I've just heard too many horror stories. At least with a Mac OS, even, it'd be "No one uses Macs if they can help it so no one makes software for the fucking things". The Linux and Unix and Ubuntu and Sambuntu and Rularururuntu and all that? Heard too many stories of guys who will go on long rants about how 'nix is the only way to go and it's the only OS worth a damn, and then turn around from their 'nix computer to their Windows computer and boot it up so they can actually play games or do some normal work. Or how if you want to get support for the OS, you can't just ask because everyone will be like "Read your manuals loser", you have to say "Man Windows is so awesome at X, why can't 'nix be awesome at X?" and then you'll get eleven different replies about ways 'nix can toootally do X better than Windows.
These stories and others... just, no. Not even once. I'll take my big corporate OS and like it, thank you.
