Just curios about what OS is everybody running at the moment. In addition to your vote please reply with your comment (i.e. UNIX - *BSD or Windows - XP Pro). I think this is going to be a long thread... I'll go first:

UNIX - Slackware 8.1

FreeBSD and NetBSD are my choice operating systems. I like them because of the more complete feel to them. With Linux not every distribution is released with the same software or may have slight differences in where files are placed. With FreeBSD or NetBSD you get a "Berkley Standard Distribution" so it feels more complete and organized (at least to me anyway).

If I want to use Linux for any particular reason then I'll use Slackware or CRUX because they are more BSD like :).

Oh and win98 on the machine my family uses. They didn't take to well to RedHat.

-Edit-

hacnslash: How come you are so anxious to use Longhorn? I just remember something I read on it awhile back was damn scary. Isn't Longhorn just Windows XP with a bunch of extra stuff that allows Microsoft to have more control over your machine?

Well this build (*edit* build 3683 *edit*)is still between xp and another windows version, so yeah its sort of like xp with an overhauled (but still not good) gui. I dont believe that microsoft has implemented any next generation computing base *cough*palladium*cough*components in there yet, so I don't think there's gonna be much of a problem, plus it is definetely not gonna be my main os. I want to try it because Im curious, not because I endorse microsoft's business style or crappy software for that matter, I am just really curious to see what redmond has come up with so far.

Well I run a bunch of things here.

Gentoo Linux 1.4_rc2 - rc3 should be out sometime today.

Redhat Linux 8.0 - Soon to wipe it and move back to Slackware which is far better in my opinion.

Solaris 9 - Suns Unix operating system. Very good OS with lots of linux support. I run this on my Sun Ultra 10.

Netbsd 1.6 - Awesome and very secure OS. It has definetally impressed me and I may soon like it over linux. I run this on a Sparc Station 5 170Mhz.

Windows 2000 Professional - In my opinion the only good OS Microsoft has ever produced.

Windows 98 - For some Wine action on my linux box

:devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil:

The desktop machine is a Windows whore. I'm sorry, but with superior DivX tools and all the games, I'm locked into a Windows platform.

But the server runs Slackware. :ninja:

Oh, and the laptop is a dual boot Slackware/XP.

I wouldn't trust anything that needs to be reliable with Windows... but I must admit, WindowsXP can stay up for months (of punishment even) before it goes down. But the server has only been turned off for hardware upgrades or moving.
