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[?]

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