Thanks for the tip and yeah i have been thinking about going witha dual os setup for a while... but since i have never felt i had the time to realy learn a new OS I have never gotten around to it.
As to what is the best programing platform, i think the diference is marginal at best. At least if what you want (like me) is a good IDE (integrated developing enviroment, or something like that) since most of the good ones atleast for java which im working in now exist for both linux, windows and unix platforms.
And since most unix/linus programers use emacs to code in and it exists for windows too the reasons to switch OS based on programing needs are'nt that many. About the only one i can think of is gcc which is suposed to be the most eficent compiler around, and since im not selling anything yet i dont realy have a need for that either <!-- s;-) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;-) --> view post
