Every so often I will download Ubuntu and promise myself I will use it more and maybe one day migrate over to it, but after I install it, I would be lucky to boot into it more than twice before uninstalling it. I hate going to play music and finding out .mp3s aren't supported natively so I have to go download some pack (don't know if that is still the case), then display drivers aren't supported properly/experimental, blah blah. I admire the hard work a lot of people put into the different linux distros, but I'm just not that into it to put in the extra effort. That might change in the future.
When you use an OS for a long time you get used to it. You know all the software you need: browser, music player, video player, image editing software, gaming, etc.. You set up your back-ups and understand how to diagnose and resolve issues. Despite what people say, I have been using windows for over a decade and haven't had lots of major problems. In my experience, people **** things up when they are downloading cracked software, "free porn", stupid toolbars, opening attachments from unknown sources etc. Essentially, being ignorant about security and keeping their systems up-to-date. Or perhaps I am just one ofthe lucky ones?
