Tip: Try playing around with the Horizontal Level Settings in Lunar Magic. You can create some uniquely-designed levels unlike anything seen in the original Super Mario World.

Do you use/prefer Mac, Windows, or Linux? I personally prefer Windows, because I've grown up with it, ever since Windows 98.

Windows. I've never used Linux in my life, and never will.

i just lurk sometimes
I use Windows, and I used it since I was young. I tried Linux, but after a while, but it seems to keep crashing my computer somehow.

I can't believe that I still remember this place.
Windows master race reporting in.
Windows=nice things
because why else would they cost up to twice as much as macs
macs are for poorfags
like every business ever

I use Windows XP.

In my opinion Mac sux, and I have never used Linux.
Mac. I originally used Windows, but started using a Mac a few years ago, and I'm much more used to it now.

Good fucking bye.
Computing can be used for discussions too, you know.

Anyway, Windows. Windows Vista. I don't care what everyone says about the OS, it hasn't given me trouble and I like it a lot. People tried getting me to convert to Linux, I'm not giving up compatibility and familiarity just because you can hardly get viruses and it's more flexible.
For me it's a tie between Mac and Linux, in particular Ubuntu. I mean I like the Mac for it's ease of use and simplicity; however I also like Ubuntu for the fact that it is similar to a Mac (from what I find coming from a very happy Mac user) with the exception that it is fully customizable. Although if it came down to one, I suppose I would stick with a Mac.

Wait, what? The cheapest Mac (the Mac Mini for those that are curious) that you can find on the market is about $700 (US). The cheapest one you could find for about the same thing in regards to memory and storage is maybe $400-$500. This of course doesn't factor in virus protection which you practically (most do, not always) need at this time.

Or am I just missing something here?

I used to use Windows XP, and I loved it. Favorite OS ever <3

Now I'm stuck with Ubuntu due to an accident. It's alright, but if I were given a choice, I would never run Linux ever :| I can hardly get anything working on it, maybe because I have a netbook (and yet running the netbook edition, lol)
I like 'em all! :P I used a Windows PC until last year, then got my first Mac. I really like it, but things like LM are only for Windows, and honestly, WINE for Mac is really slow. So my Mac dual-boots both Mac OS X and Windows 7. Some people say, "Macs run Windows really slow," and things like that, but my Mac mini runs it fine. I mean, they're both Intel for heaven's sake!

I like Linux, but don't use it. I installed Ubuntu on my old computer, just to try it out. I have to admit, I like it. It's surprisingly easy to use once it's all set up. Still, the lack of application support made me neglect it, and I eventually shut it down for good.

Reporting in as Vista user. After a year (or two rather) with Vista you know your way around in it. It's actually pretty fast, and if you have a brain you don't get viruses.

Though, I still wanna test a good Linux distro on this Vista computer. Only been able to use usb drives to try Linux, and that just slows the OS down a lot.
Recently I've been using windows XP a lot more (Hacking and other stuff), but generally I prefer Arch Linux.

I have a few laptops which include systems such as Windows XP, OS X (10.4), and Ubuntu 10.10. I'll be honest with you, but Windows XP and other Windows systems suit my needs very well. I have tried to install Ubuntu on my primary laptop, but it was simply miserable: sound refused to sync or even work, graphics card was unsupported, and it was overall slow. Now, my iBook G4 with OS X on it, that is even worse, even after I added another gig of RAM.

I think that you should stick to what you're most familiar with.


i own a vista laptop that's i've had for a couple of years, and i've never really felt the need to upgrade. it's done the trick.

macs can go eat a bag of asses, they're terrible. linux is something i've yet to get working properly on a computer, but it seems pretty good. i doubt i'll give up windows for it, but it's still pretty great.

nothing much more to say besides what's been said already.
we are all 😎 but some are more 😎 than others
This explains my feelings pretty well.

joking aside, windows, so much more awesome for a smaller price. version? 7. I prefer XP though, for these reasons:
1.much more compatibility
2.you can actually access system32 files.

lolwut?

In both Windows Vista and 7 you can totally corrupt your computer.

Windows only made it harder for one to do so.

(Also, since when is XP compatible with anything?)

what I mean is that most important files on the computer (i.e. program files) aren't permanently locked. also, xp has a shit ton of programs you can only run on it, look in to it yourself.
W7 XP Mode?

Anyways, Program Files aren't perma-locked, but for some reason Microsoft decided to make those files hard to reach (and clean, damnit)
But with a little knowledge on what the hell you're doing (which is what you're gonna need if you're cleaning) fixing that is easy.
I have windows 7 starter. I don't have most of W7's extra features.
Let's see, Windows is something I'd recommend for general use, as it's very easy to use. Linux comes in many flavors. My favorite distro I've tried is Ubuntu. The thing about Linux though, is that while it's very fast, stable, and secure, it's not as easy as Windows. You'll find yourself using the command line a lot. Mac, I really have no opinion on. If you work with the arts, get it, I guess. If not, it's probably not worth paying $1000+ for it and a computer that can run it.
