What OS do you run: XP, Vista, Linux, Mac? - Page 2

post #16 of 360
Run OS X, XP and Ubuntu. Use OS X the most.

XP at the moment, although I'm considering installing Vista 32-bit for my next build. I just haven't yet found enough reasons to justify a Vista install

I'm using Vista 32-bit since there's now a driver for the Transit USB. =D

Vista is crap IMO, except perhaps that it's DX10 ready for gaming - but I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on that. It's no better than a beta; they should have waited to release it but no, they wanted it on the market for end users to be the guinea pigs.

OpenBSD 4.0 on my main pc, I keep my music collection as flac files on this and play them with Kaffeine.

http://www.openbsd.org/

Windows xp or 2000 on my gaming pc. I don't use that for anything else.

OSX All the way! I kicked out all of my heathen boxes two years ago and haven't looked back since.

Thank You Apple!

XP here until I'm forced to "upgrade" to Vista. I dread the day.

Agreed. I run Win XP on 2 systems, Mac OS on two systems, Ubuntu Linux on one and Openbsd on another.

Vista Premium 64-bit. Quirky now, great later. I plan on having my home computer basically forever (I probably won't have to upgrade anything in there for at least 5-6 years), so that's why I went with it.

I built my rig...so XP is on it...I would go linux but my love for photoshop keeps me here. I would go OSX but without insane hacks and instability it's not supported on my system...I would buy a mac, but I'd have to sell my car to do so.

That's ok because it was given to me for free.

The driver model has changed and that's why you think it sucks. It's the 3rd party manufacturers who are not getting up to speed with driver releases that suck and not the OS itself. Vista Home Premium has a ton more features than
XP Home. it is closer to XP Pro with MCE built in. Now, what is so bad about that? I have had a few minor annoyances with it but once you start delving into it you see it is actually a pretty good OS. If you look into hacking Vista you can make it behave just like XP but that would defeat one of Vista's major benefits and that is added security.

Are those actually Mac computers or are you using that hack method to get them to run on PC's?
