It was in 2007 that I had deep serious thought about what I wanted to use as a personal computer operating system.

At that point, I had been using Linux exclusively for some time. I had a big plan to buy my first Apple computer, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized how much I love Linux.

When I started using Linux, it was because I hated Microsoft Windows (Windows 98). In 2007, I realized that was no longer the case. I now use Linux by choice. If I had a choice to use any operating system, I would choose Linux.

Even so, I have Haiku installed and am active in the Haiku user community. I look forward to the day when Haiku can be used as my primary desktop operating system.
