Default linux vs windows

I was just wondering how many of you out there use linux or windows and which distro you use. I'am using windows xp mce 2005 on the pc in my sig and my laptop is linux (ubuntu 7.04 beta) with beryl. I have also noticed something ind of strange which is when I switched from xp to ubuntu on my laptop my wireless suddenly got alot more powerful I can now connect to networks which were normally out of range when I was using xp the wireless router hasn't changed just my operating system.

I can neither vote, nor browse the results. By the way, windows of course. Linux need some years to reach windows prioty, and mac has not a useful desktop and it's generaly more difficult to use and a bit more erratic than windows.
