Only Snow Leopard and Win 7. For my PC laptop I used to be on Archlinux and WinXP, but the damn video card fried and I don't have money to replace it. So I'm mostly on mac now. Whatever, gets the job done and I could play games at med settings.
" Ubuntu/Fedora Linux on my netbook and desktop for general use followed by Windows 7 for gaming and Windows-only software as the secondary OS on the desktop machine. "To be honest, I've always wanted to try Linux, but I've heard simple things such as updating the OS and just getting it setup are a HUGE pain. I remember my roommate tried setting it up Linux on his machine and it took him nearly all day and he was frustrated the whole day. Personally, I don't know where to start with the bloody thing so where do you Linux users start to get all you know-how, etc?
" Windows 7. Say what you will about MS, but it's an amazing OSYou can start here. If you do try it out, start with Ubuntu, or Mint. They are the easiest to use. Updates and configuration should be easy as long as you don't have really exotic hardware.

I'm using Window XP right now, but i used a lot of OS in my life,and i still have those on separate machines
So,yep i have 5 working PCs right now. Maybe I'll play Prince of Persia on DOS today,for old time sake.
" I'm currently dual booting Windows 7 RC and Ubuntu 9.04. I mainly use Windows because this site is currently jacked on Ubuntu and so is Youtube. Does anyone have any recommendation for fixing it? I like Ubuntu way more I just can't enjoy my favourite site so I use it less. "What web browser do you use? I dual boot as well, and only use Win 7 on weekends when I play PC games, but the rest of the time I'm using Ubuntu and I web browse with Google Chrome, this site seems perfectly fine to me.
I have 32-bit Windows Vista on my gaming computer (I had 64-bit but I ran into issues with Flash and some drivers). I have a 32-bit Windows 7 disc I got for free from Microsoft, but I have not wanted to deal with upgrading my OS when it's been fine.
Haha. Right now I am posting from a Mac OS 10.4 Tiger machine. I still like this old babe. Still not a fan of Leopard.
Anyways, I also have a gaming-only PC that is currently running Windows 7. I finally upgraded from windows XP. I was scared after my sister bought a Sony Viao like 2 years ago with Windows Vista on which she hated not even knowing about the tech worlds outcry against Microsoft for that piece of trash. But with getting a super cheap Ultimate version through my college, I decided to bite. Plus it is 64 bit and was hoping more games would kind of use that now-a-days.
Oh yeah, and I also have a linux machine that I mess around on with coding and just another computer. I really have no interest in doing it for a job, but since I was in 6th grade I really enjoyed everything coding when I first learned HTML and then went on to Visual Basic 5.
1. Mac OS 10.4 - iMac
2. Mac OS 10.5 - MacBook
3. Windows 7 - Gaming Rig
4. Linux SuSE 11.(something).
Stuck using OS X Tiger indefinitely due to issues with my laptop. Namely, the disc drive doesn't read anything and I can't be bothered paying to fix something I rarely used.
Eventually I'll be forced to upgrade as applications continue to drop support for Tiger though. That's awesome.
