Ubuntu Linux takes my money

Second comes Windows, so I guess Windows takes the money, since Linux isn't in this competition...

While I've only used it in a Virtual Machine, Linux seems easy to learn (from my perspective) and is understandable, and if you have a problem, there is the Internet.

Windows I like because I've grown up with it. I like the older OS's - especially XP - a lot since they're relatively intuitive and runs pretty well. Windows 7 was alright as well, but I'm not too excited about the one-size-fits-all approach they're taking now. I prefer to use the programs that are on Windows or have no need to use the ones on Apple OS. *maybe* Mac is easier to learn, but since I spend most of my time around computers anyways, complexity isn't an issue for me.

Coke, always coke unless I go to KFC, then it's Pepsi. Just a habit. And the slight difference in taste.

Arg, nice ninja...

Anyways, for the next one, I personally like Cola-Cola because it's a little more original to me. While I dislike the slightly harsher taste, it would be the soda I pick up if I'm mixing sodas (Dr. Pepper + Coke ftw ) or have to choose between to the two. Considering their entire selection of sodas, I still choose Coca-Cola because they have more original / recognizable tastes in my opinion.

MICROSOFT-14
vs.
APPLE-5

Apple is the Winner!

lolwut?

Anyway, of the two, I pick Coke. It seems smoother, especially when it's imported from Mexico and made with real sugar.

Also, if you mix equal parts Dr Pepper and 7-UP, it tastes like the soda form of blue moon ice cream. Not sure why.

I tried to snort Coke once, but the ice cubes got stuck in my nose.

I made a mistake when someone told me to try the ''sugar''.

Btw, are there any places where Pepsi is more popular? Cause Coke seems to dominate.

I have to go for Pepsi. I like the name better.

Here where I live, coke sells three 6-packs to every Pepsi 6-pack. Coke is crazy popular.

Oops, I didn't see that a new round started.

Well I only really get to drink the generic versions of them so it's hard for me to tell but probably Coke.

Coca-Cola. Tastes better in my opinion...and it has Dr. Pepper on it's side

Also..The Invention of Lying put it best..."Pepsi, we're an off-brand"

I prefer pepsi to coke, but i like sprite way more than sierra mist.

Coca~Cola went to town
Pepsi Cola shot him down
Dr. Pepper fixed him up
Now they all drink 7-up

I don't really like either to be honest. If I had to choose I'd probably pick coke but if there was any choice at all I'd go with sprite or 7-up.

Pepsi always tasted like off coke to me...

I like Coke, but I don't drink it that often. I usually drink Dr. Pepper if I drink soda.
