I have a Dell XPS 1730 laptop running Vista.
Am fed up of Windows but have to keep up with it cause of my professional needs.
So I have Windows running on my desktop & plan installing some Linux platform Or Mac OS?
Once tried Ubuntu8, initially had difficulty understanding & than with utility softwares/messengers, caming softwares & drivers etc.
For windows I use AV, ASW, 7 Zip, VLC, MS Office07, CCleaner, Defraggler, Snagit, Yahoo, Windows Live, G Chrome Browser, Image Burn, Logitech Quick cam Pro 9000 webcam, Secunia, Live streaming Video capture & conversion tools like WM Recorder Replay Video Suite etc.
But now things must have improved.
To sum it up in a nut shell which flavor of Linux or Mac, which would you experienced members recommend, keeping in mind that I have bearded windows for 18 yrs & would like something that is a bit user friendly & less of a headache at the same time.
