I had XP pro on my windows machine until it died. Now I'm running Mac OS X Tiger (running XP pro in Virtual PC so I can run ProMash)

I run XP Home and XP Pro on my work computers. The newest laptop I got for my folks runs Vista. I really like XP, the short time I spent setting up the Vista machine didn't leave me particularly impressed with the new OS.

I run XP Home because that's what we use at work (well, we run Pro at work, but close enough...), so I can easily bring projects home. I used to have a dual boot Linux/Windows machine (in college), but I wasn't very happy with the everyday-use type software offerings for Linux, so I scrapped it. I really dug the Enlightenment window manager, though. I might have to look into Linux again now that it's matured quite a bit.

WTF? Where's the Mac OS X option? There are more of us than there are Linux guys (in the world, not this forum).

Home: Slackware
Home Office: Slackware VM Server (VMs = Win95, Win98, WinME, Win2K, WinXP, Win2K3), XP Pro Workstation, Slackware SAN (3TB)

The VMs are for testing our software on various Windows versions. I also use XP virtual machines completely setup for each client with a complete development platform for their particular projects. Talk about taking up a lot of space. I've got 3TB of dedicated storage and still needing more.

I'm definitely a Linux guy but Windows pays the bills. Oh well.
