Rather, when choosing which operating systems you're going to use, it's better not to make it too tribalistic. Microsoft vs. linux might start to look the same as emacs vs. vim, backstreet boys vs. nsync, nacho cheese vs. nutella, great for silly humor but not much else. Rather, software is better looked at in terms of simply what you want or use value. If you are the cutting edge, max system requirement steam gamer, or some employer who wants their employees not to care about how exactly the computers work in the office, you'll probably go with windows. The last thing i will say in support of linux is that it has usurped windows in terms of being the thing that "just works" in many regards within a pretty short period of time. In terms desktop and laptop distros, it will stay a "dweebo nerds only" type of thing to an extent, which is not something i feel any desire to change or criticize.
