Windows 7: Why do YOU choose to use Windows?

20 Apr 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7077 x64
Why do YOU choose to use Windows?

The title is quite self explanatory I suppose. But this is for people who use Windows willingly, not only because they likely started using it first. What do you like about it as opposed to other operating systems? This doesn't mean you use Windows only, diversity is cool, but if you do use Windows, porque?

I will give my own responses after I go eat :P

Windows XP

No need to create compatibility problems and headaches for me. Windows isn't perfect; however it serves its purpose .

Slackware / Windows 7 x64 7100

Because I am a repair center manager, 99.9% of my customers wouldn't have a clue as to how to use Linux so I have to dabble with their poison.

I'm VERY impressed with Win7 x64 though....................tough for a hard core Slacker to admit but it is what it is.

I design magazines and Websites and work for printing and I have to share lot of files with outer world and all the major printing people have windows So I use windows, 1 other reason for using it is software support(Just Double-click the .exe and in most of the cases it installs), Linux I used before 1.5 or 2 years ago for 4 months and I have seen that quite often u need to be online for installing some software due to dependency problems and libraries while I'm sometimes Im offloop from net for 10-15 days....
