So let's see what operating systems are people using here. smile.gif

I use Debian linux and Windows Xp at the moment. I have apple on the way.
I won't change my Windows xp to Vista, because the next Windows will be here in 2009. And i HOPE it will be at least a little better than Vista is.

Windows XP Media Center Edition (Servicepack 2)

So far it's working for me but the only thing it does not work with is the apple i-tunes for Windows. Let's my system crash constantly so I took it off. It works though with my older version of Windows XP (Service Pack 1) on my laptop.

I don't know from which side the glitch is coming from apple or windows but it works out pretty good so far having the programm not on my desktop.

Linux rules my desktop. Windows and Solaris are also present, but less frequently used.

I have xp pro on the laptop- just because it was installed when I got it. No problems running anything I want- iTunes works fine- I do want to download Firefox and install it, just haven't taken the time yet.
I am still using Win2000 on my office computer. Works fine.

I use Windows XP at home and at work, but have Vista on my laptop. I plan to put Ubuntu on on older computer at home. I can't believe Vista takes up HALF of my hard drive on my new laptop! Everything MS is massive. Vista is pretty, but . . . I am sure it is half-baked and not really done. I live in a Windows MS world and have to be able to transfer work from school ( work ) and home.

I use Vista, It's not very good and supports very few programs. I would REALLY like to use a Version of Linux, but can't figure out how to get a computer to boot from a CD or a USB Drive, could some one maybe help me please?

On my laptop I run Winblows XP SP2. I also have a Sun workstation running Solaris 10. I fear I am doomed to have Vista loaded on my laptop sometime in 2008. My company is a big MS shop and Vista is in the pipe. All the people I know who have been piloting for the company say it's nice to look at but too resource intensive. They also say the so called "upgrade" is not worth it.

Had my druthers, I'd either have a Mac or preferably a Linux box on my desk.

You'll need to create a boot floppy containing grub and a kernel with support for your CD-ROM. Configuring it to correctly mount the root filesystem on the install CD might be a new experience though. Last time I built for my 486, I stuck the drive in another machine that could boot from CD for the initial install then moved it back.

Windows XP Professional w/ SP2 for me.
It's mature, it's stable, it runs the programs I want it to run.
Otherwise, I use things like Firefox, OpenOffice, etc...
