Vista.

#202 Posted by Chandu83 (222 posts) -

Windows 7 Professional.

#203 Posted by Lawrens (688 posts) -

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.

Weird more people on Vista than 7 Or XP?

#207 Posted by NoDeath (798 posts) -
@Ferginator4k:  This thread was made before 7 was actually out. I imagine that if the poll was restarted we'd see that a lot of the xp and vista people have moved on to 7.

Kubuntu 9.10 'Karmic Koala'.

I currently use Linux Mint as my main work/programming machine. But I need windows to play games so I have a computer with Windows 7 Ultimate set up.

#210 Posted by dancinginfernal (470 posts) -

Windows XP MCE on my home/gaming computer.
 
Everywhere else, Vista, Vista, Vista. Mostly because I'm too lazy to correct that.

I personally really like WIndows 7 64-bit.  I switched to that from XP recently and am not looking back.

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?

You 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 on the other hand use Arch Linux x86_64. I virtualize Windows Vista when I desperately need to use Microsoft Office, which thankfully, is very rare.
#216 Posted by Giantine (11 posts) -

I have Windows 7, but I am quite surprised that there are so many using it. I consider it to be quite glitchy. 

#217 Posted by jimmy5150 (122 posts) -

Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. 
 
I really liked upgrading from vista on my machine and seeing my memory usage when idle go down about 20-30%.  Haven't had any issues since upgrading.

" 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'm a greedy sod, I have xp pro, Vista 64 ultimate and Windows 7(64) pro on the same pc (3 separate drives)  This is just to ensure I can play my game collection. Since I already owned the O/S's I just added hard drives :)

#239 Posted by Wolfenhex (22 posts) -

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.

#240 Posted by WickedCobra03 (2102 posts) -

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).

Windows 7 x64 <3 <3

Snow Leopard on the Desktop 
Leopard on the Macbook 
 
I stopped using Windows at home after being responsible for 400+ multi-user notebooks running Windows 3.11 (at a time when NT was already out and known to work relatively well. But in this company these descisions take time...). After that,  I never wanted see Windows ever again.  
And right now I'm sitting here posting this from a notebook running Windows Xp. And believe me when I say most websites (this one included) look crap when using IExplorer 6. 
But then again, this company ain't the fastest when it comes to upgrading software...
#243 Posted by Mariorules85 (33 posts) -

Runnin' Windows 7. Quite a fine OS. Thank god it's better than Vista.

#244 Posted by Jaz (22 posts) -

Windows 7, x64. 

#246 Posted by timmysprinkles (75 posts) -

On my laptop, I'm running OS X Snow Leopard and Ubuntu 10.04. 
On my gaming desktop, I'm running Windows 7 and Fedora 13. 
On my school and work desktop, I'm running CentOS 5.

#247 Posted by hmmisee (156 posts) -

Windows 7 Ultimate X64, never had any issues, its great.

#248 Posted by DiscoDuck8k (499 posts) -

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.

#249 Posted by InfamousBIG (3200 posts) -

Vista Home Premium 32 Bit.

#250 Posted by LtSquigs (253 posts) -

Windows Vista mainly, don't want to have to deal with upgrading to 7 yet. Occasionally boot up Linux in VitrualBox for random projects.
