Arrrr ye mateys!

I use XP X64 for my desktop
I use OSX with my Powerbook Ti1000
I use Solaris with my Sun equipment
I use linux on my experimenting box (until I get rid of it)

I use XP and OSX equally
and I use Solaris for serving everything!
I use a linux OS which I build from scratch to help people with troubleshooting or when I get bored and want to build something

I use Cisco IOS and CatOS for the routers and switches I have.

Ok, I win: I get the only "none of the above" vote in the poll. (at least... so far tongue.gif )
this PC: multiboot options. Win XP Pro, OS/2 4.0 and eComStation 2.0 RC4 (eCS right now)
other desktop: dual-boots eCS 2.0 RC4 and OS/2 4.0
laptop: Win XP Media Edition

Drinking is a sport. In order to be competitive, you must practice on a regular basis. Although you can practice alone, it is much more fun to practice with friends. If you're out of shape and practice too hard, you will regret it the next day.

*official "bump an old thread day"*
Sorry, forgot the "and why" part.
I only have Win installed on my computers out of necessity for gaming. I have absolutely no need for a bloated, buggy, security hole ridden OS for general usage.
On that note, I have to say Win XP is fairly decent. As far as features and stability go, it's nice to see MS finally caught up (in 2001) to what IBM had in 1996.
With the majority of Linux open-source software ported to OS/2, I get all I need or want on a reliable platform that with minimal OS overhead.

I use Linux myself but view the OS as a tool to get the job done.

In the 20 plus years I have worked with computers I have found the following works


Technical people -- unix/linux -- they like to be close to their computers
Mid-level managers -- windows -- they do not have time to be close to their computers
Upper-level manages -- Secretaries -- the lobotomy they received to get to that position keeps them from their computers

May I add one:

Graphics folks -- MacOS -- don't mind being close to the computer, but don't really want to spend all day tweaking either.

Here I am !
Till last week I had XP Pro SP2 ; now, trying to resolve some problems with my audio device (I use pc also to make music), I have a second OS, XP Home version.
It seems to be better, but just slower than before ; maybe in August there will be an other format of the machine...
