I just jumped from Debian Sid to NetBSD on my Desktop. :) Still quite a n00b, but havent had any time to really look at it yet. I still run Debian on my other boxes though. NetBSD does look nice if you know what you are doing.

So, currently:

Debian, NetBSD, Windows XP.

I mostly use linux, but I dual boot with Windows XP for audio editing and gaming (although I've been moving to consoles for gaming more lately). I've also run FreeBSD and Solaris 10 in the past (still have them on VMs), but ehh, didn't like them for a home computer. I ran Mac OS X for a while and I'd probably run it again if I could afford a real mac instead of trying to work with a hackintosh.

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?

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.

OpenBSD (On most of my servers and I have it on a desktop)

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?

Is there a reason to run NetBSD instead of FreeBSD, on x86?

Besides Linux?

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.

I use Slackware for my Asterisk/file storage box. I have Slackware running on a pentium pro but I am trying to get freebsd installed on it. My only other PC running is my laptop which is my main PC I use. It is currently running Kubuntu Edgy. I have VMware running on the lappy and I have Windows XP Pro in VM for testing purposes
