    Question OS at home and work?

    I just wanted to get an idea of how dominate Linux vs. Windows is in AO. So I thought I'd do a poll to see the variations. I know, at least I myself, lean towards Linux. However do to MS dominance most of of are forced to use Windows of some flavor. So I wanted to see the spread in office to home use.

    Thanks.

    At home I have both, Windows XP Professional and Red Hat Linux 7.1. I don't work yet, but I go to uni, where they have Windows 2000 Professional.

    Thumbs up

    several version of all OS in both places.

    At home several netwares, several nt, w2k, win9x and ux's. Yes I do have a big network. Ok so maybe I need a life - what's your point?

    At work several netwares, several winx, several ux.

    At work we have (down in a dungeon somewhere) IBM AS400
    Most people have PCs running NT4.
    Some have an icon to log on to AS400.
    We got all these Grahipc arts type people using
    Apple MAC power pc g3 g4 whatever,
    I run XEROX printers, huge beasts, 180 pages per minute.
    Each printer has its own SUN sparc workstation running
    Solaris. How they network all this stuff I don't know.
    I think the Sysadmin has a secret control room converted
    from an old bank vault. I swear, it has a combination lock.
    The door is six inches thick.

    At home I got win 98 on this box, and three old 486s running
    linux.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    hmm..

    I both in both places.

    For most of my tasks at work, I am able to use linux, but, there are a few things I need to do, which require me to use windows.

    I have been trying to get my boss to spring for VMware workstation, so I can just stay in linux, and run a virtual machine when I need windows, but, no dice yet.

    At home I usually run linux, except for when I play some of my games(Everquest, Dark Age of Camelot, etc....) as they require windows. And of course, sometimes, I just dont feel like rebooting, and do stuff I would normally do in linux, on windows.
