Alex Wilhelm got a virus on his Windows 7 computer that left him in serious trouble:

Every single safeguard the OS had failed, and I ended up with a full computer that I could not restore, reinstall, or boot normally in any way without facing an immediate Blue Screen of Death. I sat there in safe mode and picked at my teeth.

Sounds lovely, this though is the best bit:

I still love and prefer Windows 7, but I am forever adding a caveat to that statement: when it works.

So I guess the new tag line for Windows is: “When it works”. Compare that to Apple’s: “It just works”. If you are still confused about which OS you should choose — well, actually, then I can’t help you.
