All OS's have their strengths and weaknesses. It's a fallacy to think that any OS is 'more stable' than any other. There may be particular areas where Windows is more vulnerable than Linux - but equally, there are areas where Windows shines and Linux sucks (hardware support being an obvious example).

Your choice of OS should be based on your target audience. If you're driven by the ideaology of open source programming; and if your customers are already using Linux; and if they're comfortable about using command lines / compiling from source etc then Linux is probably a good bet. On the other hand, if your target audience is used to the ease of Windows, then it would be a mistake to think you can convert them to a supposedly 'more stable' OS that will probably give them nothing but headaches. Similarly, if you're intending to target the business sector (where your apps will need to be installed & supported by IT professionals) you can bet your bottom dollar that they won't want to get involved with Linux (at least, not on the desktop).

Linux is strong in certain areas (e.g. server side) and it's starting to grow strong in other areas (e.g. multimedia) but it's not the right choice for everyone, so you need to choose it for the right reasons - not because people have told you it's 'more stable' (which it isn't).

[offtopic-answer to the johne53's reply]I will use Linux, because I want to develop 3D games with Irrlicht that can be compiled for all distros of Linux and all versions Windows.Linux is ideal for my target.I've already tested Linux and Windows - which one can use the RAM in a better way - Linux was better.Also, Linux doesnt have alot of viruses.That's why i've chousen Linux instead of Windows.

Yes, you are write, but I think the all things are linked - the hardware is created for Microsoft (if you get the point)...
And I am driven by the ideaology of open source programming!I am trying to host server for my games, so Linux is the OS for me.

Maybe you need to install the wxWidgets library from
- add the repository:
--- Code: ---deb gutsy-wx
--- End code ---
- and the public key:
--- Code: ---wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -
--- End code ---

Regards, pasgui

I decided to change my repository for debian.

That means all former entries in "/etc/apt/sources.list" will not work anymore.

The reason is that I now build packages not only for "i386" (32-bit) systems, but also for "amd64" (64-bit systems), but based only on one suite (stable aka etch).

Please have a look for the new entries for "sources.list" on the starting page of my repository (see signature),

I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but I hope I make it a little bit more comfortable for all 64-bit debian users to work with C::B.

The actual (and only) version of C::B in my repo is svn4845 at the moment.

   I was able to build an RPM for Mandriva 2006 just correcting the wxSleep stuff. Unfortunatelly I don't have place to store it but I can send to anyone who ask for.
