Many people replied, most were just silly MS hate...
The suggestion of Wine is not a useful one, running applications like Office and Adobe CC in an emulator (or whatever you want to call it) vs the native OS is not likely to be a great experience.
Why bother, when Windows works fine?
The MS hate here is silly, Windows has issues, but so does Linux, neither are perfect...
You know I was a zealot anti MS guy 15 years ago. Then switched pro MS around Windows 7. Now turning back due to Windows 10.
No Windows did work fine under XP after SP 3 and Windows 7. It does not anymore. Plug in a kindle BAM BSOD. Install AMD Catalyst drivers after last weeks update? BAM need a re-mage to install the driver. Need Powershell DSC ... now need to fire a Windows Server 2012 R2 VM for my labs and certification. This is rediculous.
I would say go Apple, but Apple too has had bugs with updates on MacOSX Yosemite. Wifi is a mess there too@! I just want to give up on any OS regardless. But too many older computers have hardware where the drivers are constaly over written with MS ones that break it! Windows Update keeps getting less and less customizable for the pro users. Last night I tried to setup it for Windows 8.1 style of let me decide when to reboot it. Now the option is grayed out and I just have a time to reset it where it will reboot without asking. WTF.
Will I loose my work? Yes. That is unacceptable and Windows 8.1 just gives a warning and prompts to save at least before it reboots for an update.
Windows 10 is awesome in many ways. But without QA, forced updates, and spyware MS dropped the ball as this could have been the next XP and 7.
