With all the "haters" of Linux on /g/ (in a non-le maymay way) I'm gonna play devil's advocate here and ask:

What alternatives are we supposed to use other than Linux?

Microsoft has decided to take Windows in a completely unforgivable direction post Windows 7. They've ruined their product trying to imitate other operating system's made by companies who focus on hardware or worse, trying to appeal to a "mobile market."

Apple is a hardware company who still SOLDERS THEIR PROCESSORS AND RAM. I know that Apple OS is built on a BSD/Linux foundation that is Unix certified or something, but isn't Apple OS worse to "make your own" than Windows? Doesn't Apple take ever precaution they can to make it uncustomizable because they don't want you ruining their "vision" of what they think you should use your computer for? It feels like they are "leasing" their computer to you for a high price with lots of strings attached.

I've heard great things about BSD, but like many Linux distros made for advanced users I've also heard/read that doing that even remotely in the category of "entertainment" it is impossible. I'm probably wrong but can you even stream flash on BSD? Again, I know very little about BSD and honestly I'm hoping someone can give me some insight to it.

If you have $700 to spend, you may want to spend a little more just for future-proofing yourself.

that being said, you shouldn't be spending more than $350 for a decent ThinkPad. Use the extra cash to throw in an SSD and some RAM, possibly an IPS panel if you go for an X220.

I use a T420 for my uni and it's a workhorse. I have an SSD and 8GB of RAM. The thing's a tank and it's unstoppable

T-Mobile family plan is $100 for 2 lines with unlimited everything (Data is slowed on each phone after it reaches 3gb. It isn't shared so both phones have their own data)

No problem. Forgot to add that there isn't contracts with T-Mobile, so you never have to worry about termination fees.

Should I get my free copy of Windows 7 Pro, or should I pirate Windows 7 Ultimate again and risk it getting shit/breaking all the time in 2 months?

bonus question: could a mobo or HDD be responsible for OS freezing (win 8.1). Mostly curious about mobo becuase it's kinda old already. It freezes and doesn't respond to the power button and reset button (except holding the power button for 5 seconds to turn it off completely). sometimes it shuts down itself and turns itself on again (like a delayed restart)
