Microsoft's involvement in Linux and open source is an interesting
development. One I guess we should cautiously welcome. As for Windows 10, I
don't much like it. The last Microsoft OS I actually liked, and still don't
mind using is Windows 7. I now use openSUSE for almost everything. Mostly
only use Windows now when I really need to use Adobe Creative Suite. Aside
from that, I can do everything else in Linux, and faster. Shocking how slow
even a fresh install of Windows runs on the same hardware as an up to date
distro of GNU/Linux!
