Operating system poll!

PLEASE READ BEFORE ANSWERING THE POLL!

alright guys, it's time to see who uses what OS. i have allowed you to choose every option if you so desire, but to keep this fair, ONLY check off an option if you regularly use the operating system or DID use it for a good length of time.

if you booted it once, put it in a virtual machine once, spilled your coffee on the installation disks once, don't check it off.

also, i know the list isn't exhaustive...but i tried to include everything i thought people would be using.

lastly, this poll isn't really aimed at server operating systems. yes, you could use a lot of the listed operating systems as a base for a server machine, and many do, but this is mostly to see who uses what operating system for their desktops.

edit: sorry about the poll reset, i had some 'complaints' about how i listed the operating systems.

Well,
I've used Wndows XP (Even 98 and and NT and 2000! :lol: ),
None of which I liked as much after 3 years using Debian, So I voted both windows and a Linux flavor...
Just because it gives me the freedom to hack around my system like I want, Not being restricted to anything.
(And I mean anything because editing the kernel is what I call 'hack'...)

So ehm, What do you guys use?
In the Garden of Eden sat Adam,
Massaging the bust of his madam,
He chuckled with mirth,
For he knew that on earth,
There were only two boobs and he had 'em.

Most of my machines run a BSD flavor. I do have an old box running FreeDOS dedicated to old games though :D

Most of the time I use Ubuntu Linux. Like right now i'm using it.

I have XP on another machine but don't use it much.
