Windows, Linux and OSX

Windows is the most used Operating System from an end user point of view. Next is Mac and the last ofcourse is linux. But this is not the case for a developer. Most of the development forums I've found online for the past so many years have given me results that has dealt fairly equal with these three major operating systems.

So, I would suggest to get your hands dirty with all these, if you have not already. If you have a Windows machine at work, buy a Macbook at home, install Linux (best is Ubuntu) on your desktop. Yes, this involves some cost, but trust me, its definitely worth it and you can see yourself well ahead of the curve as a developer.

For me, I use Linux at work and Mac at home. I hardly use windows these days but I have used it for a good 10+ years!!
