    Since my last post in this thread, I've added Debian (Lenny) on a sheevaplug to my work/dev environment.

    I run a myriad of different operating systems. I dual boot Win7 and Ubuntu on main home system. I have a work computer running XP. Another work computer that running OSX 10.6. Several iBook G4s running Debian PPC, also a couple of G4s running 10.4. I have virtual machines running OpenSuse, Debian, Backtrack, Samurai, FreeBSD, Server 2003 and 2008, DSL, DVL, CentOS, Fedora, Knoppix-STD, etc.

    For anyone interested, a friend of mine has spear-headed on a Debian project, called live-helper. The address is http://live-helper.debian.net ... you can create custom live CDs based on many different window managers, and package sets. You can also customize the packages that are installed. I have a scaled down debian installation, CLI only with nmap added... it is 76MB. Pretty fun to play around with.

    In this day in age it's familiar for people to have a few OS booting on the same PC, i have a older PC that houses 6 OS.
    It's running 3 20GB IDE drives with 2os dual boot on each drive, there are a variety of free solutions that allow you to "Customise" your boot loader/menu


    @t Johnno i wish i could house that many machines at home, the GF would kill me on site if i tried to bring anymore hardware through the front door without 1st consulting her and the reason's on why i need it etc..

    Eileen once said she would divorce me if I brought another computer into the house........ so I brought a case, motherboard, processor, and the rest and built one in front of her.................

    The next day she returned from work with 3 PIIIs that were going to be thrown out????
