Linux is not even supported where I work on PCs. Laptops are generally just used for ssh to the cluster, preparing/displaying presentations, email, and basically not bioinformatic computation... personally, I use Windows 10 on my laptop, which I don't like very much, and Windows 7 on my desktop, which I like. That said, most people here use Macs, partly because when you do want to do bioinformatics locally, it's easier.

That may be different now that supposedly Windows 10 supports Bash and Linux but I have not tested it out yet.

If I was to choose between a Mac and Linux, I'd go with Linux, but it's really personal preference.
