The only reason my wife and sons run Windows are: 1) Son is big-time gamer and 2) wife runs our accounting using QuickBooks which is Windows only. Personally, I have not used Windows in 3-4 years and use FreeBSD and Linux. Don't miss Windows at all.
Most people forget that *nix is a professional operating system while Windows is geared toward amateurs. That's why amateurs do not like *nix cause Windows is geared toward them for ease of use but this ease of use limits flexibility. I've always compared the two as what a construction worker would go to work in. He can take the family van but, when he needs real work done, he takes a truck.
