Vista or Linux

hi friends, i m going to buy a new laptop these week.
which OS should i prefer??
Windows Vista or Linux??

Windows 7.

Vista was a huge pain in the @ss and linux doesn’t have the apps for ID. Or go for a mac, but you will for sure need os x or windows to run the most common apps used in ID so don’t go for linux (unless you’re buying a netbook for surfing and checking email, then it will work… but then I’d go for the dell mini 10v and run OS X on it :smiley: )
