gosh... MSM rings a bell indeed - yes, wrote far to many lines of it, even using "windows" (text-style). The boss at the time insisted we used single character commands to make the code more compact - and abso-bleep-ing unreadable obviously

I do hope that wasn't Midas accounts by any chance.....sounds familiar with Single Char. Looked like computer generated code rather than human. I spent an awful long time with Switzer-Deutsch Dictionary translating the text tooo. ;)

AS/400 -> OS/400 of course ... arf....

MUMPS... no... there cannot - absolutely not - be another MUMPS victim on this forum ?? jees.... my 1st job involved MUMPS (cannot remember the brand, some x86)...  I feel for you :( Thats bad :(

Dont dis AS/400.. our company used it for about two decades and it worked flawlessly. Even in today, in the year of 2010 it can offer the same as todays systems. We have now moved from AS/400 to Windows (Axapta) and my quess is that the company will face bankcruptsy because of this.

We will know more when my two weeks winterholiday is over ;)

Here's my list:

1. Linux (Debian and Arch)
2. Amiga OS 3.1
3. Sparta DOS X 4.42
4. MyDOS 4.53
5. MSXDOS 2.41
6. MSX-View 1.20
7. Residos 2.25

I've only listed OS's I currently use. I've used MorphOS for 7 years but not anymore, if I would still be using it I would've listed it in second place.

How about a breakdown by decade?

For me:

70's - Atari 2600 - all I had! :)
80's - Commodore 64/Amiga WB 1.3
90's - Amiga 2.x, DOS, Windows 98 Second Edition
00's - Windows 2000 PRO - It just Rocked, Linux, Windows XP

I've used a lot more.. but these are ones I like to still play around with...

Cheers!

The ones that have stuck out were:
 
Linux. Ive used Ubuntu for 5 years now and its pretty much perfect
Amiga OS. Simple and lean.
 
OSX seems nice, and I enjoy using it on my wife's laptop, but I've never really spent a lot of time on it, other than basic tasks. Doesn't seem to offer anything that makes the loss of freedom worth the trade.
 
Of the windows versions, 2000 is the only one I'd consider using if I ultimately had to.
