I don't see a reason why we can't have all 3 operating systems on there.
Right now, Noisebridge does not have a public Windows computer anywhere.
Nor do we have a public Intel-based MacOS computer. A good
hackerspace should have all sorts of different systems. It takes all
kinds. In management-speak, we call this "diversity".
Since the Windows on that computer and all the development tools are
licensed, I would just assume keep Windows on there.
As for the MacOS, I had sought a donation of an Intel-based MacOS
computer awhile back. Iphone SDK only runs on MacOS. Also, there just
aren't any professional-quality non-linear video editing programs for linux.
