2)
What operating system do you prefer
I prefer Windows because I know it well. I also like Linux with the GUI but, but they are not user-friendly enough and still harder to configure/manage than Windows. There is also not enough games that run on Linux natively.

3) What do you use your computer for?
1. Internet browsing / e-mail
2. Gaming
3. Programming (PHP/MySQL)
4. Video Editing
(In "time I spend" order)
