OK, I'm a Linux guy you already know I'm going to come down in favor of Ubuntu 9.10.. But, I actually like Windows 7 as well. Which lead me to the question, why do I still prefer Linux?
First, Windows 7 is no more secure than Windows has ever been. Is it better than Vista? Sure. Is it faster than XP? Well, not so much. Does it run a ton of popular applications? You betcha. But, is Windows 7 still prone to an endless array of malware programs and stuck with a pre-Internet security model? Yes, yes it is.
