Linux While it may seem like Linux-only projects are betraying their loyal base by developing Windows or OSX versions, I would argue that cross-platform development is actually better for Linux as a whole, better for individual software projects and their developers, and ultimately better for Linux users.

My work Laptop grinds to a halt every Wednesday morning as the McAfee AV Scanner cripples the machine for 6 hours. I can't get the time it run changed as it is all locked down by a group policy. PAH!

As long as you have to use Windows, I would advise against McAfee and Norton garbage. There are better anti-virus outthere that don't kill the PC while working. At least Karpesky works well for me.

Of course if you are forced to use McAfee as company police there is not much you can do about it. If you happen to have admin rights you can shutdown the process just before it is supposed to do a full scan and bring it up afterwards. In some cases this works and the full scan is skipped.
