"Saddens me that people think Samsung is Android. Sure, at the moment their phones use Android as a backend. Trust me, they are going to ditch Android as soon as they get the chance."

Lets focus mainly on :

"Saddens me that people think Samsung is Android"

That right there is an assumption. Yes, I am also guilty of assumption because im assuming this was directed at me, after all I was the only one to say Android. With the exception of Edgar of course.

Why do all of your arguments have to end with something negative to say about me?

Right now that depends on do you want to have more ability to load more of todays software's?

Do you have your home all Apple already, because that's what Apple pretty much requires. It don't run right with Windows or Linux.

So this used to be down to the graphics ability but they are both pretty even to for manipulation and graphic design.

While Im an old schooler and hate the thought of one tech giant, most things are MSFT compatible.

I like that people don't think windows is all bulletproof either (of course).  That means they don't run around all cocky saying they cant be hacked this way or that... Lets face it, some of us laughed hard in 2011 when the Linux Git hub was discovered to be "...running SEVERAL variants for an unspecified amount of time that did give the ability for hackers to hack the source file, butmost likely did not."

What... Linux, actual malware style data breach virus and such... say it aint so.

To hilarious... anything can get a virus. When you think there your system is bulletproof... that's when they have the best designed malware.

Why not Linux and Android? 

Open source > Closed-Source/Proprietary Software that tracks your every move that you can't configure/alter yourself to your liking.

The real bottom line is do you want to have to learn new things that may take a bit to cordiante with the rest of your functional e-life or do you want something designed for it because you don't want to learn terminal commands and just want the system to run.

If you are ready to develop for the OS you have MAC.  That way things that are windows variants you get to use the terminal window to make happen.

If your looking for a syatem that most the world is already functional with and don't want to spend hours researching something that might not even be possible.. Windows.

So do you mind terminal settings, if not Apple/*nux.  Do you want point and click, then Windows.

They all have the same risk of exploitation these days.  Before I would say *nux and apple were higher risk because everyones outright cries as to them being virus free.

Now we all have accepted they are all just as easy as the other to exploit. If you haven't, go read some more.

Frankly, google/Android should ditch samsung. Samsung takes 95 percentile of the money, if google set there mind to it, I am sure they could make a better phone than Samsung.

Phones: Hands down google/Android. Best series is the google Nexus series.

Laptop: Microsoft/Linux dual-boot. M$'s new Surface LTs are pretty cool. Apple has always used underperformance overpriced laptops. I can't stand them. BTW, you can install Windows, Linux, or even Apple on any laptop anyway.

PC: Linux/Microsoft dual-boot of course.

In terms of software and OSes, the reason I like Microsoft so much is that you can do so much in the operating system. You can play games, edit s***, program, whatever. But the stock command line in Windows is pretty damn crappy, so when I'm just using a computer for downloading, browsing the internet, or programming, I use linux. There's tons of versions of linux, and most of them are awesome, plus it's opensource mostly and free. M$ and linux cover it all, so Apple has nothing to offer me. 

**The one thing I respect about Apple though is that their filesystem is Unix-based and they use the bash shell. That's pretty cool.

Almost everyone keeps in the middle and pretending that keep both sides :)
But I am 100% sure that everyone grew up with Microsoft and unfortunately,because Microsoft for some reason underestimated
Mobile Technology and thought that mobile tech will not grow that fast and didn't invest that much in mobile tech.
But Microsoft is Microsoft and I am pretty sure that they are restructuring and developing new "weapon" which will surprise lot of people.
So,I am not ashamed to say that I prefer Windows OS in all Devices but they should have FREE version of OS in order everyone has chance to have that or afford that with a good price.

I think the reason most people (at least the people that know the operating system past the GUI) harbor resentment for Microsoft, is because of their need to constantly do things differently than the rest of the industry.  Take for instance the ^M that is placed on the end of lines when coding on a MS machine, or the need to interpret CSS in IE differently than every other browser.  

Lets not forget the ruthlessness of their licensing.   I applaud many of their efforts.   .NET is a great framework, and I am glad they finally made it opensource.  I also think many of their applications are very good.  Visual Studio makes coding almost child's play.
