Whats your OS (Operation System)?


Hi girls and guy

Whats your OS on your PC , do you have Windows, and if which version? Do you have a Mac OS?
Anybody else has any Linux distro? or even rarer OSX or Solaris?

I have now had Linux Ubuntu for over a month, and after some initial hard time to get things going(well getting to know the new material) I really like it.

Everything is working alright, and so much faster. My old computer on which I am is at least twice as fast if not three times as fast as he was under Windows.

Also I don't have any system crashes or programme crashes any more and I have the best looking theme on my Computer too, as it is also customisable

I had Windows XP before and my laptop still has dual boot.
and my computer was really sluggishly slow, you know talk of having a tea break between starting the Browser and using it.

Anyway how do you feel about your OS and which one do you have?

Heya

I have Windows 7 Ultimate on my personal PC and we have same on the file-server and a version on Linux on the internet server. (the file-server and internet server are both duel boot) I let my OH deal with all that even though I'm the one with the degree in Internet Technology lol.

Not sure the version now but we used to use the linux version Red Hat if I remember correctly.

My PC really needs an overhaul and an upgrade and I feel that windows needs reinstalling already as it can crash quite a bit and bugger things up....

xx

I have Windows 7 Business on my main PC, Windows XP Pro on my server (web server + media server combined), Windows XP Pro on my Revo (Tiny little media PC with HD connection to TV in the lounge), and I used to use an IPCop machine as an internet router / firewall.

I personally use windows xp professional, cracked to my liking, along with a copy of backtrack 3 i have (Backtrack3 is based off of linux). Xp in my opinion is still the quickest and most efficent operating system. Vista was straight trash. And windows 7 is built off of vista core, with problems fixed and everything vista was SUPPOSED to have....

I have Windows 7 and I love it because I'm not clever enough to use anything else. My computer geek.....I mean genius, OH has just switched to Linux and he said it's better and faster....I just laughed at the word Gimp.
