    Which version of OS X are you currently using in your computer? Or are you using something else (Windows, Linux, etc.)? Or have you given up computers and are using iOS devices only? You may choose as many as you want to, if you have more than one computer / device / partition.

    Wow, you seem to have a lot of computers! And they are mostly desktops.

    I use both Mac OS X Lion and Windows 7 (with Bootcamp) on my white MacBook (it doesn't support OS X Mountain Lion, so I didn't do the upgrade). I use Windows 7 on my desktop PC (which I built by myself). I use both Windows 7 and Windows 8 beta on my PC laptop (a 15-inch Sager). And I use iOS on my iPad and on my iPhone.

    Win 7 Enterprise and Android Gingerbread at work.

    Mountain Lion and iOS at home.

    Other family members have Lion.

    I have an antique G4 mini running Leopard that I keep around for old times' sake. :D

    I still have a '06 Black Macbook, but the logic board went bad last year so I bought an Acer Aspire 722 Netbook as a cheap temporary replacement. That said, I really need a new laptop because the netbook is painfully slow! I'm thinking about a 13" Macbook Pro.

    Main is OS X 10.8.2 on iMac and MB(P|A).
    My firewall runs on FreeBSD and my Windows Vista on virtual machines either under Fusion on Mac or recently on VMware ESXi Win8 still public preview only in virtual. And Ubuntu Server also virtual.

    Well let's see. I have two iMac's, one on Lion and the other on Mountain Lion. At work I use a combination of Windows 7, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. I also have a couple of iOS devices.

    I am surprised to see that almost everybody actually has several computers and use both OS X and Windows. I have three computers myself, but I was actually thinking of keeping just one.

    One computer would feel lonely; they are as social as humans and want to talk to each other :D

    Some us are split between home and office. Myself, I use only OS X at home and only Windows at work.

    Perhaps because of Microsoft Office?

    Not in my case. I use MS Office at work and at home; I think it's a good suite of programs. :)

    The folks with one machine just click on the poll and move on. Those with more than one like to brag. :)

    Home setup involves a Core 2 Duo iMac (SL), a MacBook (SL), a PowerBook (Tiger), an Asus i5 laptop that was built for gaming (Win7), and a hand-built AMD Phenom system that multi-boots Ubuntu 10.4 and Win 7.

    Work setup involves three Dell Optiplex desksides (Win 7, Ubuntu 10.4, Mint 13) and a MacBook Pro (SL). Tried Mountain Lion but returned to Snow Leopard.

    Well, so far people seem to have migrated from Lion to Mountain Lion (or sticked with Snow Leopard) pretty much as they did from Vista to Windows 7 (or stayed with Windows XP). Didn't you like Lion?

    ML on my IMac, MBP and MBA IOS6 on my ipad3 and new iphone5. I'm something of a compulsive upgrader though...I did hand back on SL to Lion a few months though.

    The new scrollbars in Lion were a serious problem. The new auto-save code also seemed to be confusing Adobe CS 5.5. Once I returned to Snow Leopard, I appreciated other things I'd missed, including being able to use my Rosetta-dependent apps and peripherals.

    Still on Snow Leopard, though I missed some of the features on Mountain Lion. Until Apple fix the severe GPU memory leak that stalls my BOINC every time I launch Google Chrome or other GPU-dedicated trigger finger apps :mad:, I will stay with SL...

    I miss Snow Leopard! I am currently using Lion, but it is slow on my 2008 MacBook. I wish I could go back to Snow Leopard, but my optical drive has stopped working, making me unable to install it again. And I didn't have time to figure out how to install Snow Leopard without an optical drive...
