Personally i'm beyond breaking point with Microsoft on software. I'd love to move over to Apple or Linux apart from no decent accounts software and the fact i've invested in thousands on Adobe Windows...
That is frequently the way... people stay where they are because they have been there for a lot of money...
As for accounts software a quick google reveals:
No idea if any of them is any good though.
I think Linux OS will have it's day as it's getting there bit by bit but I think Google Android and Chromium are just Google advertising engines and the main Linux Desktop will eventually win.
Well, for mobile devices Android seems to work well. That said it would be good to see just Linux on a smart phone.
Whilst I love Linux and it's stability I find android a very poor subsitiute especially when i know that every android device has a perfectly good Linux Kernel under the bonnet.
Windows 8 really does not excite me at all.
I would love Apple to launch OSX into the intel platform so we could all buy a £400 quid i3 laptop from Asus or Acer and install a really nice OS, but as Apple has started to become expensive on kit again i doubt we'll ever see it.
Apple already runs in Intel, they just don't like you installing their software on someone else's hardware. In many ways Apple has a more monopolistic attitude than Microsoft, in my view.
