Windows Vista. I know, I know, it's the object of much derision, but I must have a miracle copy on my system because it has really served me very well with no issues.

I have never used Mac.

Used Linux for close to 10 years starting with Slackware 3.0 in about 1996.

Microsoft user now. I have Vista on both my computers.

What caused you to switch to Windows? Was it Vista particularly?

I actually switched to Windows because I had software for a course that I could not get to work with Linux. I decided that I would use Windows for the duration of the course and then switch back (edit: I am sure any Linux users are wondering why I didn't run both on the same system, but putting Windows on, of course required any other OS to be whiped off, and I figured that the Windows experiment would be short lived enough that there was no sense partitioning to add a second OS after installing Windows). But I never got around to it. Then I bought my laptop which had Vista on it and I thought that I would switch one or the other to Linux, but I have been satisfied with Windows and don't have much free time. Sticking with Windows, for at least the time being, seems simpler for my complicated life. Perhaps if I had experienced the new developments that I am sure have occured with Linux over the past 6 or 7 years I would be less satisfied with Windows.

On my computer: Windows.

In the house (on disks, images, etc, just not used): Windows, Linux, and I believe Microsoft Singularity (NOT a Windows OS, but is a Microsoft OS)

I just installed windows 7 on this computer and I like it a lot. Windows XP is on the other 2 computers. One even has an old kubuntu partition which is never used.

Vista. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. As long as the computer works (and lately it's been acting up), I'm good.

XP Pro. Probably buy a copy of whatever's new when I need more than 3.5GB of RAM.

Gentoo Linux on my laptop and development servers (grandiose term for a pile of dusty desktop machines) for work and play, CentOS, FreeBSD and Open Solaris in VMs on my laptop to mess around with.

Ubuntu Linux on my netbook and workstation at home. Ubuntu and Windows XP (ugh, only use it to run a video conferencing program and very rarely Word) on my work laptop and Redhat Enterprise Linux 5 on my work workstation. Also messing with a couple of RHEL4 and 5 servers at work.

I have a MacBook Pro (leopard) and an older laptop set up as a dual boot with Windows XP and Ubuntu. The MacBook will probably also end up as a dual boot once I decide what flavor of linux I want on it.

I use openSUSE Linux and Archlinux mostly, but I do have a FreeBSD install as well that rarely sees the light of day.

Microsoft and used to have OpenSuse.

Now that I've stopped playing WC3, maybe I'll go Linux again.
