Just an offtopic question, you may even not answer it, if you prefer:
why not using linux? There are so many different distributions, for
different kinds of public and activities!
I would use Linux except that I have accumulated a number of
applications that I like but that exist only for Windows.
Actually, I was a UNIX user before I ever saw a PC running Windows. As
a software tester for a large client-server system, I wrote a number of
test tools in UNIX Korn. Thus, I think I could adapt to Linux quite
easily. However, I do not want to give up using the Windows-only
applications I have accumulated.
You may use Wine to run applications. Its compatibility with programs
has improved a lot, along the years passing. Today, even Microsoft uses
Wine to run things in linux!
I installed Skype in my computer (which has only linux today, and will
probably stay like this a long time) using MS official packages (I chose
the .deb one, since my OS is Debian) several weeks ago. I did not have
Wine installed here before, and the only "fancy" program installed here
was Skype... so I think I can safely state: Skype for Linux is run using
Wine, although that is completely transparent to users.
Would you mind listing the accumulated applications you use? I would
just like to know them. It is not to argument anything else to you -
since we are talking about this from something offtopic I started, and I
do not intend to make this a "go to linux" discussion. At least, not
more than you show you want - and you did not until now - which I will
help where I can.
