    Jesus. Why so many?

    I just use OSX 10.4 and Windows 2000 on occasions, cause that's what everyone else in my house uses.

    Duff-Man says...by choice, just one - 10.4.1 at the moment....but at work I am forced to use (and support) Windoze 2000. I used to play around with BeOS when I had a machine I could run it on and also dabbled in a few Linux distros but OS X kind of made them pointless for my needs......oh yeah!

    I use OS X 10.4.0 (soon to be upgraded to 10.4.1 when I get back to my apartment).

    I use Windows XP and Solaris, when I have occasion to, in the computer labs at school. I also run Windows ME and a bunch of Linux distros (my favorite being Ubuntu) in Virtual PC, but only because I can't find my copy of Windows 98 SE.

    XP Home (parents computer)
    2k Server (my music/file server)
    2k Pro

    Some UNIX build in school CAD lab, not sure which one.

    I think that wraps it up, but having switched earlier this year I can happily say that I now much prefer OSX any day of the week :D

    I use Mac OS X 10.4 (now 10.4.1, since I updated) the most. Second place goes to WinXP (have a WinXP box at home, and WinXP is my only choice at work).

    I still have my Mac OS X 10.2 and 10.3 install CDs lying around, but both of them are of little use to me now, since none of my (working) Macs can run them (my iMac came with a later version of Panther than the one on the CD set I have).

    i use 10.4.1 on my macs, and windows xp + media center edition on my other computers.

    i dont know why, but whenever im using windows (especially on someone elses computer) i always get the feeling something bad is gonna happen - it feels so easy to break..in fact, i barely use windows now. the only time i use it is when im fixing someones computer or printing something downstairs.

    anyone else remember your stomach turning when re-installing windows? i was always so scared it was gonna screw up (especially when installing on other peoples pc's)

    ah, happy days.

    OS 10.4.1 on my three Macs, and I've got a partition with 10.3.9 on one of them just in case I need to go back to it ;-)

    I've also got an XP box at home that I built myself, and I use 2000 and XP at work regularly.

    I've tried to gain an interest in Linux, but I just really don't care to try it. Why bother when I can use OS X?
