The Windows Free Zone
Berekeley, CA is a "Nuclear Free Zone". My house is primarily a Windows Free Zone. My main machine maintains a bare-bones Win7 install in Virtualbox for work apps and my son's machine dual-boots Win7 and Linux Mint. Otherwise, all systems are Pure Linux (TM).
All Linux installs are Linux Mint 17.2 (Cinnamon Edition 64-bit).
I should point out that the recent (entirely voluntary) upgrade from 17.1 to 17.2 was a single mouse click and single reboot, taking less than 30 minutes to complete. Now THAT's how an upgrade should be!
