Lul, I has WinXP, WinVista, and Ubuntu on 'ere. Yay for partitioning.
Makes for excellent cross-platform compatibility testing.

Now if only I had the time/know-how to get OS X on here... X-D
Anyone have an OS X on PC install guide they could pass my way?

Cheers

I use Windows and Linux at the same time, no dual booting. Usually on my desktop, though, my laptop has a hard enough time trying to run one.

Hm...

At current I'm running Winbloze Vista.

In the future however I'd like to put the numerous Ubuntu Live CD's to use again and install them on a partition of my hard drive. :P

I've considered voting for BSD. But it really depends. I use 3 equally. They each have their purpose, so I don't prefer one over the other, as they all have their individual uses.

& realistically, if you want to be a prick about it... OSX is built on BSD. So Mac users on OSX could be voting wrong :)

I'm using pure Windows Vista Home Premium SP1. It was installed on my laptop since I bought it and it works really well. Do not intend to change it until the release of Windows 7.

For me (note I said me) Linux wins hands down; its quick boot times, its security, it's helpful community, its almost inability to crash, its easy customisation, its stability, its ability to update without needing to restart every time and its power of giving life to older computers.

It was only after I used Linux I realised how much I hated Windows though.

If you look at the sixth word, I wasn't trying to persuade anyone.

Should've been checkboxes instead of radio buttons :)

I use various flavors of Windows and Linux daily, as well as Mac OS X. In the past I've also developed on Sun Solaris as well.
