    Wut OS do you like, use, prefer?

    I was thinking. There are soo many operating systems out there. Free ones, and Ones you need to purchace.

    Some are popular, some are not. Some are good, some aren't soo good. =)

    i'm just curious wut everyone uses... I'm sure theres a pretty good variation.. of different ones.. like free and purchased os's.. but. who knows?

    i use windows, xp professional. I am pretty satisfied with it. I haven't seen any problems with it.. or, atleast not yet.

    Ahhh OS's

    Here's my Five.

    Games Machine = 98 SE
    Redundant Web Access Box = 98 SE
    Home Work Kit = 2K Prof
    Storage Box = Novell Netware 5.1
    Doorstop = NeXtStep release 3.1

    I did have a Linux box (Redhat 6.whatever), but it died :-( . (So much for me learning Linux)

    I think my favorite OS has to be Windows 2k (Coz it's fairly stable, and It don't phone home quite every second) but for sheer Nads the NeXt box is pretty hard to fault.

    I do have every intention of building a new Linux machine, so don't consign me to the scrapheap quite yet.

    i have tried linux , but i did not like it because it is not very easy to use, and i couldn't get my modem or sound card working on it. I use win xp now, it is fairly stable, but can be a pain in the ass sometimes....
    Just my two cents,

    I use Windows XP. Reason: I like to live dangerously. And what could be more risky than running Windows XP Home Edition.

    win2k is my fav, although i do have winxp to "play with"
    i can't say that downloading updates is a fun hobby though...

    i'm a bit partial when it come to linux, redhat and debian are my top two with mandrake not far behind. it just depends on my mood... too bad my unix machine died but it will rise again...
