Slackware is a simply Unix-like Linux, it eliminates bloat and is optimized for old machines.

One thing I am watching really closely is GNU/HURD. That's looking to be something really cool.
I'm really wanting to try openVMS as well. However I dont have a VAX computer so eh.

That reason for running Windows use to be very valid, but I think since Ubuntu came on the scene that has been changing. Ubuntu is easier to use than Windows at this point (package management ftw). With Ubuntu if I want a program I don't have to run out to the store to get it, I don't even have to pirate it if I want it fast and cheap. I can just fire up synaptic and have the program running for me a matter of minutes, no charge.
I am a believer in the OS is just a tool and I use WindowsXP Pro for day to day and gaming use, when I need to hack the shit out of something and need tools and *nix power, I use the Auditor live distro. I take it everywhere I go. A computer is used to run applications and lets face it I can format and install a Windows box in 20min and have all the patches and applications I use up and running, how many of you Unix guys can say that?

NetBSD (Old random hardware)
FreeBSD (I have it on a desktop)
Solaris (I have a few workstations and a couple of servers)
AIX (Running on a work station mainly for CAE)
HP-UX (Running on a server)
z/OS (I only use it at work)
OS X (I have a MacBook Pro and a load of older Apple hardware laying around)
BeOS (Just for shits and giggles)
Windows CE/ Server 2003/ XP/ Vista/ XP Embedded (Mainly for testing things out)
Minix (Just for shits and giggles)
Plan 9 (Just for shits and giggles)
OpenDarwin (Just for shits and giggles)
FreeDOS (Just for shits and giggles)
VxWorks (Work related)
My main computers are a Windows XP box which is used for a mixture of electronic design and coding. I have a bunch of OpenBSD servers that are used for everything from a squid web proxy cache to a desktop. My main desktop is Debian with a custom kernel and my main laptop is OS X.

Why are you running NetBSD instead of FreeBSD?
I just jumped from Debian Sid to NetBSD on my Desktop.
Is there a reason to run NetBSD instead of FreeBSD, on x86?

Windows 2000, Windows XP, Mac OSX, Solaris, OpenBSD.
Windows 2000 for fooling around experiments.
Windows xp, for day to day life.
Mac OSX for music and editing and what not.
Solaris for my honeypot, and OpenBSD for my server.
