      Which OS do you prefer, Windows, Mac or Linux? My preference is Mac and Linux because they have good privacy policies and have much less malware in the wild for them :)

      I've used all of these and it really depends what I need to get done on that machine. If it's a really old out of date PC that doesn't run so fast anymore, I'll almost always slap a lightweight version of a linux distro on it such as Puppy Linux or Xubuntu.

      Windows is great for other things like gaming ( I love my gaming laptop)

      as for designing and coding and other types of media creation, I prefer Mac. :) However, I no longer have access to one.

      Windows, just because that's what I've always used.

      With how windows 10 is going, I can see myself going with linux sometime in the near future.
