OSNews, Generic OSes Change platforms. Whenever you can. Ever since I got into computing, I've lived according to a very simple adage: change platforms all the time. For reasons I won't go into, the importance of this adage was reaffirmed today, and I figured I'd share it with you all - and hopefully, get a few of you to follow this adage as well.

I personally think that "switching" is overkill unless you have a lot of time and money to toss in the direction of techie toys.

I prefer experimenting with multiple platforms in parallel. Always have. Single-threading OS use is boring...

Even if you have time and money, it's still overkill on the planet/environment.
