I often hear Mac OS users switching to Windows is simply NOT an option. Fair enough. Would Linux work then? I'm curious because it's always nice to have alternatives than being locked into a "virtual monopoly". Also aware that those not pleased with this year's MBP can and are using MBP from last year and beyond, but that won't last forever. FYI: I don't have plans to do this. I am interested in experiences that people have had with this, other considerations as part of general tech talk.
