Went Back To Windows(R)...

People who are trash Windows are generally just pro-alternative.  I
like alternatives.  I like open source.  MS has output some failures
but they have also had some that were not so bad.  I've ran windows 7
for my office machine as well as my laptop without a problem.  Have I
had a problem with Vista personally?  No...But being in IT I've
certainly seen my share of flaky machines that I did not have an
answer for except to say, "Hey, let's upgrade and get off of Vista",
and the quirks were gone.  Semi reminiscent of the ME days.

Myself, I may switch back to Windows for better support of
multi-display (more then 2).  I might fight with this box once again
and upon completion, Acronis image it off.  I am undecided.  I may
take the laptop and load Ubuntu.  I am undecided on that one.

As far as software development, my preference always has been to c++
and if I were developing for a MS environment, I'd virtualize for a
test bed.  Just my after thoughts...
