I still use OS3.x, but am also going to install Linux and AROS on my Amiga soon.  Also going to install those 2 immediately in the new refurb PC, cause not planning on using Win XP for much.

I voted OSX, but that's not strictly speaking true. IOS is my everyday platform, I can go many days without turning on my laptops (OSX)... By my iPhone gets hourly usage ;)

XP mostly, seeing as it's just not worth the effort to do my sort of things on another OS. But I also use Ubuntu and AOS4 whenever I can, i.e. most days. Also have my trusty iBook with OSX Tiger on it for when I need a laptop, and have one machine with a Haiku and AROS dualboot setup, but that'd only be turned on occasionally...

I use Ubuntu 10.10 but not going to update to 11 because of crap unity. If i did update my Linux i will probably move over to Kubuntu because I've heard it's better.


I hear you. Setup 11.04 about a week ago and was shocked.

That bad? i actually haven't used it i'm going by what others have said.

While some of us are talking about Linux is there really much of a difference between all the distros? I have only ever used Ubuntu so i wouldn't know :)
Even my cat doesn\'t like me.

For the most part, typical desktop distributions differ significantly only in their window and package manager choices and the default applications they ship with for basic tasks. Beyond that, a 2.6 kernel machine is a 2.6 kernel machine. Anything on top is largely interchangeable.

Ah the iPhone, the new Crackberry.

Personally, I keep leaving my phone at home. I think its an act of defiance my subconscious keeps performing. At some level I loath being constantly available to anyone with my number (but I hate people who screen calls).

My wife makes fun of me because as big a nerd as I am, I refuse to have a smart phone. Phones are for voice calls dammit. Your email message is really not that important to me while I'm out. And no, I won't return your fucking text messages either.
 
I voted linux. I use windows also, but only for video editing, and I'm trying to learn a few linux video editors so I can never touch a windows machine again...

Curently I am a multi-OS user. Win7 (which seems to be the most stable thing MS has ever released:) Ubuntu is very cool, and I do have the latest version. And here lately it seems I use Amiga OS3.9 under AmiKIT (WinUAE) as much as Win7 hehe.

Amen. I don't want people to expect me to be available to them 24/7 - they can call me when I want to be called, dammit. And if I want computing power on the go - I already have it. It's called a "netbook," and it has a real hard drive, a real keyboard, and an OS that you don't have to crack to run whatever software you want on. Smartphones can go to hell.
