I think it's more about using the right tool for the right job. I use
Linux, Solaris, and Windows at home depending on the work I'm doing.
Windows does the multimedia editing and gaming, Linux desktops for the
wife and kids, and Solaris for the heavy lifting (ZFS fileserver, DNS,
ftp server, SMTP, etc. etc.) All of those OSes could do all of those
jobs, but some are much more suited to certain tasks than others.
When it's a matter of personal preference, *that's* when all the
fighting starts :)
