Windows does have some perks. One being it is easy to setup everything. The
downside is ofcourse all the security holes and it being a major target for
spyware and viruses. I don't know how linux compares in the spyware and virus
part since I have only been using linux for about 3 weeks now. I do believe
that linux is making me a better trouble shooter though since a lot of things
are harder to setup.
