I got it because 7 will disappear and lose support faster than 8 will... because... it's older.

... and 8 is cheaper.

As long as it works, I'm happy. Even if it's got a lot of stupid gimmicky quirks that frustrate the hell out of me.

7's being supported until 2020, and last I heard, XP is still around (supported till 2014).

And also, I looked at the Skype home-page, does the "desktop version" download for you (I assume it's the one intended for XP / Vista / 7)

2 years ago I promised myself to buy a pair of KRK R6's, but I never had enough money to do so.

I've been using it as my main OS for coming up on two years and I can't say I've regretted it. You just need to get past the annoyance of being a noob at it at first. There will be little things that seem hard to fix, but once you get over the fear of opening up a terminal to get a few things sorted every now and then, it's fine. Not sure if you'd like the current default desktop environment though, opinions are rather divided on it. Personally, I can work with it fine.

M$ will drop support for Win 7 soon. It's like right now if you ask for support in Vista, only the open communities can help you. And don't even mention XP (I have XP SP2)

Personally I move everything to Linux, even music production. FL studio and EWQL run quite laggy on Ubuntu but they work fine through Wine. The only thing I think people have to deal with in the dongles. I don't mind mine since I hack them but for some people who is fond with EastWest or Native Instrument stuff, this is the pain in the butt to install. I can always help out or send you my patches to fix the problem.

BrokenDeck, you can always try out KDE to get familiar with, similar to Windows Shell. The latest currently is 12.10, I suggest you get this version because the up coming 13.04 is Amazon ads built-in, even I hate this. Canonical starts to make me lose faith in Ubuntu. Now I prefer Arch Linux.

Hope copyright fags don't exploit this. Songs sound alike scare me a lot.

As in, the point where all music would either has been done or composed before. Basically, all creativity has been dried out by time.

Not gonna happen though.

Well, I'm glad to hear some reassurance.
