    Don't feel you have to list every version number or anything, but I just thought this would be good and informative!

    For me...

    - Windows (3.1 onwards, especially 98, XP and 7)

    - openSUSE Linux

    - Slackware Linux

    - Ubuntu

    - Linux Mint

    - (many other Linux distros!)

    - OS X (not too many, just 1 or 2 versions and not for too long to be honest)

    - MS-DOS

    - Android (2.x and 4.x)

    - Windows Mobile 6, 7 and 8 (mostly 6)

    - iOS 7 (and a bit of 8, very little 6 and below)

    - BlackBerry PlayBook OS

    - Other bits and bobs like old mobile phone operating systems


    And that's the bulk of it!

    You guys? :)

    Hmm, I’ve owned quite a few machines, worked in different environments, dabbled with different OSs over the years. I won’t list them all out discretely, but here’s a general idea:

    DOS (most versions from 1.x up)
    Windows (most versions, 3.11, 95, NT, XP, Vista, 2K, 7, 8, client and server products)
    OS/2 (including Warp)
    MacOS/OSX (from about 7 through current 10.x)
    Atari TOS
    AmigaOS
    Linux (several flavors, Ubu, Deb, RH, CentOS, desktop and enterprise, varying UIs GNOME, KDE)
    *NIXs (Solaris, HP-UX)
    FreeBSD
    Novell Netware
    I suppose I could include things like Cisco IOS[?]

    Not including mobile devices...

    Solaris
    Linux (many)
    Windows (most)
    OS X
    System 7-9
    MSDOS
    FreeBSD

    Probably some other earlier ones that I don't know/remember (I was young).

    Edit: I've played around with BeOS, but I didn't use it much beyond poking around.

    I have never used an operating system.
    I've only been abused by them.
