    I have used a couple variants of Linux, namely Fedora Core, Ubuntu and CentOS. The only issue I have is that Windows still is king when it comes to support for applications, drivers and patches.

    Linux mint is both robust and performant. There are too few viruses and security issues are fixed almost instantly when discovered.

    Mac has better support and reliability and is very easy to use and also make custom implementations.

    We have found the Linux solution the most cost effective and user friendly of all we have tried. Apple was not as easy to follow for our users as the gnome.

    Windows 8 was a idea best left under the covers. If not MAC OS then a flavor of Linux.
