I can't switch to Linux (even though I'd like to, I feel that working command-line in Linux provides enormous power - which is why I'm really glad we have a good SSH server at school) because:
- My laptop hardware is very poorly supported
- Microsoft Office. I'm a master at Word and PowerPoint and if you use all the advanced features there is absolutely nothing that even remotely compares to it
- My current laptop works fine with OSX, but the WiFi card doesn't work so it's basically useless for me. I really don't like cables.
- Apple hardware is a bit expensive and I really, really don't want to be one of the "Apple" crowd.
- The Apple ecosystem does nothing for me, I'm really just in for the core OS, third-party software and great hardware.
