    Has windows 7 caused you to rethink or drop using Linux?

    Not sure how many people here use linux part-time/full-time/no-time.

    W7 is great , but there are some things that are better done on unix, OS X replaced Linux for me as my unix. I still use Linux for any back-end stuff, but OS X is the unix I interact with daily.

    Linux for me was a windows replacement and it still is, but I do find doing stuff in win7 to be much easier then linux. The RDP client in windows is much more robust, and better then gnome-rdp. Performance of the RDP client is much much better and gotomypc (used to access my desktop) works in windows not linux (I use vnc when I'm in linux).

    Overall, I like linux better, but I want to be able to get my work done efficiently and so far it seems win7 is winning that battle.
