I have Linux and Windows both installed and I seem to have more problems getting the Linux to work properly with all my hardware and drivers. And never once had Windows Crash on me. So I have never just accepted that my computer should crash or do stuff I don't want, it has worked fine for me all along.
I go back to Windows for the simple fact that when I buy some new equipment it just works in Windows and I have never had a problem. With Linux I have problems at least half of the time, and when I have to get something printed on my new printer I bought, put it into windows and it will work, on Linux the driver will be screwed up and not print images, or something like that. So I use Windows for the fact that when something like this happens I don't have the time to mess around with all different third party drivers or whatever, and when I have time I will get it to work on Linux, but if I don't have the time then yes I will go back and boot up Windows because it will work.
