Which OS you like? I like three, Windows, Mac, and Linux =) . I use windows xp pro for gaming and things like that then i use Mandriva linux for servers for hosting games and Mac for graphics =). Windows and linux for most of every day use, depends on what i want to use for that day lol.

I like OS X most out of the three, and after customized, Windows XP is marginal, performance-wise. I've used Linux (in all sorts of flavors) for the past few years, and it sucks, IMO.

Just one Linux option. That is not fair... Linux is not one OS, it is many.

Well, Mepis, or Ubuntu are very good distros. Plenty of good stuff, and free. Mepis is also a Live CD. There are a few little things that keep me from recommending it, over Knoppix for a Live CD demo, but it is a lot easier to install.

Linux is GREAT IMHO. Apple has realized that Open Source code can be better in quality. When compared to Windows, Darwin (OS X), and Linux have a lot in common. :D

I do enjoy all the customization that Linux has, without bogging down the OS.

I rarely ever boot into Windows anymore.

Mac for fun, Linux for fun and testing round, and Windows for most everything else.

I would have to say Windows and Mac. Windows is what I know the best and what I use most often and Mac is, so far, the most stable one I've used (and the most optimal for certain functions, such as graphic design and movie making/editing).

i use windows xp as most of the games and whatever are designed for that, i have tried a linux distro (Lindows or Linspire as its called now) but stick to xp as its easy to use and im too lazy to try anything else


Thinking about it.

Well, I haven't really experimented with any of the other OSs besides Windows XP. Basically an all around OS for me, everything functions well on it. Once I get my 64-bit processor, I can hopefully upgrade to X64 or wait for Windows Longhorn to come out.

I use Windows because of the familiarity - it started off using it, and I know my way around. I use Red Hat Linux and Xandros to play around with and screw with Apache Web Server. I also use it for rendering flames with Apophysis.
