    Linux.
    Windows is too bloated (alas, I have to keep using it) and it's a pain in the ass to keep it stable after a few years.
    OSX runs atop a *nix core. Sorry Apple, you've done an amazing job, and made things really pretty, but I prefer the original stuff.

    oh, and NO DRM SHIT! HAHAHA!

    As far as CAD goes, and architecture in general, you make if functional first, then you make it pretty. Just like programming, mechanical design, basically everything that isn't... well, art. You can be artistic in architecture, but it's by no means a requirement.

    Most CAD software runs on windows, but could probably be easily ported to *nix or Mac as the good shit runs OpenGL accelerated graphics, not DirectX (poor Autodesk... they fucked up because they thought Vista wouldn't support OpenGL and switched to DirectX). Although, I did hear that CAD apps are running up to 70% slower on Vista, so that might be changing.

    thanks to Silverwmoon!

    I'm yet to experience the best of Linux. The linux boxes they have in uni are so damn slow and unresponsive - guess it's just the specs.
    I don't mind using OSX, except for the limited number of programs that runs on it (compared to XP)...
    So, I guess I'll stick to XP for now.
    And for now DRM is pretty much irrelevant for me... uhihihihi... >=P

    Actually, architects get structural engineers to do most of the more complex calculations. Architects are more artistic than calculations. There are civil and structural engineers to do calculations.

    I was always under the impression that the neverending debate was pie Vs cake (and occasionally ninjas Vs pirates).

    Mwahahah nice picture analogy, yeah MAC is different and they are fun for graphic design and video editing.

    I have to say Windows for me, I have to, for homework and work, can't screw around with that.

    Linux doesn't have much support (driver, software, etc) like windows,
    although you can relate software for M$ with the open source software:
    1. Open office which I think compatible with Microsoft Office document but not that perfect.
    2. GIMP, may not be as excellent as Photoshop, but for average user who's not into graphic arts business definitely choose a $0 instead of a $400 software.
    And many more.

    It's not a requirement to make it look nice, but you usually don't get as many jobs or fame for being known to make ugly buildings.

    @98- lol. That's exactly what I think of Mac.

    I like Linux, but as it sucks for gaming pretty much, I have to pic Microsoft.

    Apple is farther down on my list than eating my own feces.

    They're all fine, but since I can actually get products that work on Windows, I vote Microsoft.
