I'm using Ubuntu. I love it. Windows will never see my business again. Mac just seems like it is turning into the new windows with all of their resistance to open source.

Windows here. I've never tried Linux because I usually buy a Dell system. I don't think you can get one without Windows yet.

Sure can...Ubuntu on Dell | Ubuntu just buy a machine with a blank HD and install the OS of your choosing.

Man I really cant type tonight.

Windows, because I booted into it to do work stuff.

But most of the time, Ubuntu

The computer I'm using is a multi-boot system with:

Linux Mint (primary - everyday use)
Gentoo Linux
OpenSolaris
FreeBSD
Linux from Scratch

SWMBO's laptop has Vista and Linux Mint installed. She's slowly but surely becoming an (anything but Windows) convert as well!

I voted Linux.

XP and Vista. One came with XP when I bought it, the other I was forced to buy and was forced to use Vista on (school "conveniently" accepted the EULA for me). I tried to install Knoppix on a Dell once and it melted. Other builds of Linux either look like trash, or I can't figure out for whatever reason.
