What OS do you run? (2012-2013 update)
The Linux distros included are those which are currently the most popular according to distrowatch.com. I went back into old versions within reason, to around mid-2010 releases for each.
And I just noticed that this poll was my 1,000th forum post.
I selected Mac OS X Mountain Lion because it's the one I use most, but I also have Windows 7 on my desktop PC that I use from time to time (mainly for gaming). I did dual boot Mac OS X and Linux Mint Katya for a while, but I didn't use Mint all that often so I deleted it.
Man if you asked like a month ago I could have been the one Vista user still truckin'. I upgraded to Windows 8 and I have to say I like it a lot. Transition was a little funky at times but it's been a while since there have been any issues.
Windows 7 on my tower, plans to install windows 8 for my laptop. I have it at work and despite all the hate it's pretty interesting. There are some quirks with it, but people seem to mostly just hate the fact that it's not the same windows has been for 8 million years.
Windows 8. Runs a bit faster than 7, don't really give many shits about any other changes, but I don't mind some of the metro apps (the skype app, for example, I actually prefer to the desktop app; it's more navigable, and less laden with useless, over-beveled, undersized toolbars).
I'm using Mountain Lion right now, which I think runs pretty well. I like it a lot better than Lion, which I saw as a regression coming from Snow Leopard, which itself wasn't a big improvement over Leopard.
I occasionally use Windows, inasmuch as it allows me to access my Steam games.
Also, I've never even heard of Megeia Linux. Must be for super hipsters.
My gaming desktop still has windows 7 on it, didn't really want to switch till i figured out how win8 stands multiscreen setups,
I payed the 15 dollars for the upgrade to win8 on my beefy laptop and so far I'm liking it, the meto apps are alright and you can completely avoid them if you want with a launcher app,
-I also have a destro of Mint13 partition on my laptop for when i feel like playing that game.
Windows 8 Gaming Desktop.
Windows 8 HTPC.
Windows 7 Netbook (ugh, I know).
OS X Lion (not Mountain Lion) Macbook Pro 13" with a dual-boot of Windows 7.
A Raspberry Pi with Raspbian.
A defunct half-broken Thinkpad T61 with Vista.
My old Desktop waiting to be turned into a more capable HTPC running.... nothing at all.
I don't see how this is a single-answer question for anyone.
