Would you triple boot (and why?)?

    I know there's unofficial software out there that let's you triple boot XP/OS X/and other OS'es (like say Linux), but I was wondering if anyone here already does that or if you would do that if Apple's current Boot Camp allowed for it.

    Also, why would/wouldn't you do it? What would you use each OS for?

    I wouldn't do it. You can't use separate HDs for each OS without messing with the Apple software. I don't want some random Linux bootloader for everything.

    I wouldn't because there are no other OSs i need, Mac for normal stuff, Windows for games, Linux for ________________? I don't need it. If some new OS comes out and it has a purpose that i can use, then I might. but right now, there are no other OSs I need except OS X and XP.

    The only reason somebody would triple or dual boot for that matter, are the hobbyists. No other reason. The normal average user can do just fine with Mac or Windows. Linus is not ready, I've tried it and it sucks.
