Well if we are to ignore all those "oh no duplicate thread!" warnings, then:

My favorite OS is definitely Linux - that is, some distro's anyway.

But I use Windows (XP of course!) more. There are more games for windows and there is Visual Studio for windows (and not for linux afaik) and those 2 things are taking up most of my time.

why not a "worst OS" for a change? TI-OS (z80 and m68k, for their calculators with those processors: 83/84 series(z80) and 89 series (m68k)) is just aweful, it contains more serious bugs than Windows (windows probably contains more, but you'll never see them)

And the z80 version only uses about 32KB of the 128KB ram that is present on the (TI 84+) hardware (ok the USB routines use a buffer in a part of the "unused" ram, and some 3rd party programs use some of the additional ram).

I would write plugins, if I knew what kind of plugins were needed.. :(

I would say this is pretty biased given you are posting this in the forum of a Windows image editor.

Not necessarily. I know a lot of people who use Windows because it's the best for what they want to do but absolutelly hate it.

Except that very few people run multiple OSes and so lack experience with more than one.

Personally, yes I would agree with you. Although many people are in the situation where they run one OS at home and their work/school runs another. I know the middleschool I used to go to ran Mac OS X.

Can't you get PDN for linux?

There's an incomplete port of Paint.NET for Linux called Paint.mono.

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I don't know if this "Miguel" character has made any progress in the port yet...

...With Mac, I think the best option is to use Boot Camp. :-)
