I'd love to be in a position where I can switch without having to give it any thought.

But, just this morning again, I managed to get a laptop to refuse to load Ubuntu after a botched update somehow managed to screw up some boot data. Initramfs? As an end user, why should I need to know about that? I'm still amazed how easy it is to get Linux to fail to boot. Bad shutdown? Corrupt file system - what's an inode, and why should I care? Bad grub update? Can no longer boot up. I mean, I've seen more than my fair share of botched Windows updates, but rarely to the extent where the OS can't boot up at all. If it happens, it's usually always the same fix. On Linux...there's plenty of different things that could have happened and they all have a different solution.

I'm more than willing to say I'm doing it wrong, but this stuff's supposed to be resilient. If I can break it so often--without really trying, considering how little I use it--I must be doing something very wrong. Linux uptime is awesome - if you never let it change anything.
