Using Windows I became very frustrated due to lockups, blue screens, and loss of data. I use graphic intensive programs, paint and photo editing, publishing stuff. At work, using it in my job, it is the same as always, plus the network sluggishness has now been added. Using Linux over the years has been the most pleasant experience in computing for me and it has met my needs. None of the problems and frustrations I encountered with Windows. I have to use Windows every day at work and it is still the frustration.
I will probably continue to use Linux on my desktop. But on a laptop, OSX is nice. I don't think it is as polished as Linux, but it does create a good productive workstation environment. I now have a macbook pro with, Logic Pro X, CS6, and Microsoft 2016 fully installed. I will also install Krita.
