    As one example, Linux touchscreen support is pretty poor (e.g. I get kernel panics if I touch the screen too soon after waking Linux up from suspend). I spend most of my time on the command line in Linux because I spend most of my time developing, but I far prefer to use Windows when doing anything else because it's just a nicer experience.
    Having just had to implement something with a touchscreen at work, touchscreen support outside of mobile OS' is horrific regardless what it's on. No matter how much song and dance MSFT have made over touch events in the past few years, it just isn't worth the hassle - I can count on one hand how many big name applications actually work reliably with them (Adobe anything is not featured, hell even most microsoft applications won't play ball consistently).
