The Question Club
If you used to use a PC/Mac and recently switched to a Mac/PC (or if you use some flavor of Linux or recently switched to some flavor of Linux or whathaveyou), what made you switch? (please specify from what, to what)
What do you miss most about your old OS?
What do you love most about your new OS?
Feel free to plug in appropriate browser names as well if you recently made a switch and want to brag (IE to FF, FF to Chrome, Safari to Opera, etc.)
ETA: My own answers...
Not switched really, but I have to use a Mac at work, because one program we rely on is Mac-only (plus my boss is a Mac geek). I use a Vista laptop at home.
I miss Windows. Everything about it. Lots of programs I love are Windows-only or the Mac version sucks ass. Also, I miss being able to alt-tab between my windows (I can command-tab between programs, but can't see individual windows if I have 2+ open in a single program--it's tough to break the habit)
The startup time is amazing, it's really smooth and sleek, and while this isn't so much because of the OS, the monitor is fricking huge *__* I prefer laptops at home, but on a desk, I like having a big monitor.
I also recently switched from IE to FF, just because I heard so many nice things about the extensions. Those nice things were not lies ♥
