I use linux. I hate microsoft because they steal ideas, Linux was the first 64Bit OS, and microsoft claim they were. Microsoft also claim that they first made a GUI OS, however, all lies. Linux was there way before microsoft even came together.
Microsoft never claimed they made the first GUI.. that's one thing I learned from tech class. It's interesting you posted this because my mom and I were recently discussing the pros and cons of windows operating systems. Personally I am not a huge fan of microsoft OS... but because that's what I've been trained my entire computer life to use.. that's what I feel comforatable with. I've recently been looking into other OS... do you perhaps have some link suggestions on where I can read about other OS?
As far as the main topic of this post... I prefer IE to view sites I Design, because as a PP stated, a majority of sites are coded for IE. However, I use FF for everything else because I Feel it's safer. Just my 2 cents. Great opinans though everyone! Love reading them.

Linux is really good, like ultra good, it was made before windows. Its open-source, there are many distros, The most friendly one would be: Fedora Core 3. It is different to windows, there are almost no viruses, and no spyware that works with linux.
I do not even know how to respond to this....
Linux was not made before windows....linux was developed my Linus Torvalds in 1991 and if you like Fedora, you wouldn't even recognize it's non-gui root. Windows 1.0 was released in 1985. Windows 2 came out in Fall of 1987, Windows 3 came out in 1990....Windows 3.11 came out in April 1992. DOS foes all the way back, arguably, to 1973
Fedora Core is not the most friendly; arguably due to its rapid development cycle and cutting edge tech, it is less friendly and less stable then other more friendly distros like Mandriva (formerly mandrake), gentoo and ubuntu.
The reason there are FEW viruses (there are some) and malware is because the user base is so small it hasn't seemed worthwhile for people to attack it.
If you don't like MS products, that's cool, but get your story straight.
