You get no love from me....
I do have Windows 7 installed on a laptop, but I dual boot to Linux. I have set my default OS to Ubuntu Linux 12.04 LTS (Long Term Support) The Linux desktop environments are far more advanced than anything Windows offers. Linux offers things like "multiple desktops", you have the "always on top" option for any window, and along with maximize and minimize, you can " shade" a window. Those are just a few little advantages I find super handy.
If you want to give it a go, download Linux Mint Cinnamon w/codecs to your hard drive, and then install it to a flash drive. You can then boot from the flash drive, and Linux will run on your system without mounting any of you're hard drives, and run completely in memory. This way you can try out Mint without doing anything to you're current OS/system.
One of the biggest advantages of Linux is the software repositories. One click updates every last piece of software on your system. When I boot to Windows, I want to pull my hair out...... In Windows, every time you install or update your software, you have to reboot, and then if you want to do a quick reboot, you are forced to wait for the system to download and install updates. GRRRRRR
I run Linux on everything, personal and business. Even my Android phone runs Linux, because Android is Linux, but Android is a very restricted linux desktop/windows environment offered by Google, and as such, Google made sure you couldn't use ANY of the usual Linux software, other than the kernel and hardware drivers. I hate it when companies do crap like that.
