    INTP, has to try them all but goes with windows because it's the least user intensive.

    Are teh lazy.

    Seriously though, I'm all windows. I worked a lot with unix, loved it for servers, I worked a lot with linux, absolutely hated it. Windows never gave me much of a budge, and always does what I want, when I want it.. So. Windows ftw.

    My thinking was always:

    Windows: ESFJ
    Macintosh: ENFP
    Linux: INTP

    I get along best with Windows on the surface though I find it lacking and somewhat arbitrary underneath.

    I find Macintosh interesting and amusing, but don't really "get" why it does anything the way it does.

    Linux is inaccessible and esoteric at first, but can be really interesting and satisfying once you figure it out.

    Mac is not ENFP. Mac is much too commercial, too ST. Many elitists use Mac.

    That's because you're not a highly intellectual P. Some Ps are so intellectual that it overrides their short attention span.

    Of course an NFP would think that. Not surprising.

    Yes. Many people use Linux because of the spirit of freedom. So it is not all that J.
    Haha, yeah. But I seriously don't see any NF in there.

    I find your assumption bold. For your information, there may be other things more important to a person then spending time on an OS. :P

    Also, I'm quite above average intellectually, which is better spent on an OS that already works, instead of an OS you have to spend time on to make it to work.

    You honestly seem more aware of your priorities than you are in understanding things clearly. That tends to imply a certain degree of intellectual shallowness to me.

    But I haven't seen you analyzing the things that are important to you, so my assumption might very well be bold.

    Well, my priorities are mainly with my three companies. :P

    And as a hobby I have programming, currently working on writing a game engine in the little spare time I have.

    Should give you some idea as to why I choose for a more pnp os.
