    Find out what operating system matches your personality most, a friend of mine said that as a PC user, it matched him with Mac OS. F! it said I"m GNU/Hurd, I don't even know what os that is!

    Here's what mine said:

    You are Amiga OS. Ahead of your time. You keep a lot of balls in the air. If only your parents had given you more opportunities to suceed.

    I don't even know what Amiga OS is.... :confused:

    Congratulations!

    You are FreeBSD.

    You're a speed demon and a great networker. You have a tendency to give it away for free. Well-respected but virtually unknown.

    You are Palm OS

    Punctual, straightforward, and very useful. Your mother wants you to do more with your life like your cousin Wince, but you're happy with who you are.

    You are Debian Linux.
    People have difficulty getting to know you. Once you finally open your shell they're apt to love you.

    You are Apple Dos.
    Simple and primitive with a good understanding of the common man. You're still a work in progress, but a good start.

    You are OS X.
    You tend to be fashionable and clever despite being a bit transparent. Now that you've reached some stability you're expecting greater popularity.

    You are Windows 98.
    You're a bit flaky, but well-liked. You don't have a great memory, but everyone seems to know you. A great person to hang out with and play some games.

    You are Palm OS.
    Punctual, straightforward and very useful. Your mother wants you to do more with your life like your cousin Wince, but you're happy with who you are.

    You are Slackware Linux.
    You are the brightest among your peers, but are often mistaken as insane. Your elegant solutions to problems often take a little longer, but require much less effort to complete.

    Ha! This is what I got...

    I think it was because I chose to be Charles Manson as my villain choice. Has anyone ever seen the video of that guy in his parole hearings? Damn, it's one wacked out dude.

    Anyway, interesting little personality quiz...

    Yes, I admit it, I have multiple personality disorder :p
    I let each of my personalities fill out the survey, so I could post them.




    Actually, I was trying to see how many different OSes they would use, and apparently it is a lot, and changing the answer to one question WILL change the outcome.

    I'm a bit astonished that these OSes are so unknown -- so far, these are still "common" ones...

    No fair!!!! I want to be Amiga OS! :) *pouting* I got HP-UX -- "You're still strong despite the passage of time. Though few understand you, those who do love you deeply and appreciate you."

    Oh, and shame on you for not knowing what Amiga OS is! :eek: Out of curiousity, did you say Assembly was your favorite language? The crowning principle of good Amiga software was to dump the OS in as few commands as possible at the beginning of the program. :)

    BTW, I like the "If I end up being WinME, somebody's going to get hurt." :D

    Amiga more mac than mac. It rocked. It was pretty elelgant and powerful. It was also color back in the day when there was no color.

    I'm slackware Linux. Brightest among peers often considered insane.
