"My household is not a pure GNU/Linux household. I do have one Windows 7 computer system due to the fact that I have some family members that prefer Windows. As a web designer, computer programmer, and a business man, I take full advantage of this situation. If all of the GNU/Linux computers are being used or if it is just more convenient at the time, I often end up doing a lot of work on the Windows system. The major thing that allows me this flexibility is the extreme portability of most free and open source software. Since the source code is readily available to everyone, most of the programs I use either have a native version that runs on Windows, or someone has taken the time to port a GNU/Linux version to Windows. As such, I often forget that I am working on a Windows machine: software is what defines the user experience, not the operating system.
