Just curious to see what folks are using...

Currently I am using Ubuntu 9.04 64 bit on the desktop that I built recently and I am dual-booting Kubuntu 9.04 64 bit and Vista home premium on my laptop.. (honestly I just have Vista on the laptop for Netflix Watch it now and ESPN360 and thats all I use it for, I'm only using an 80GB partition for Windows and the rest of a 500GB HDD for Kubuntu on that machine)

I just think that Kubuntu is better for the laptop because it's powersaving features seem a little easier to use and a little bit better than in gnome..

I use Arch on both my desktop and my Eee701. It's worth nothing (I guess) that I use the 64 bit version on my desktop and the 32 bit version on the laptop.

Completely out of the blue I inherited a dell poweredge 2500 se dual pIII server w/fully stocked front-loading hdd storage :shock:

The thing drinks electricity like an underage club kid pounds red bull energy drinks, but it also has all that hot-swappable goodness going on... That machine is running deb stable, and it runs like a charm. Everything else is either a recommissioned dell or ibm desktop running centOS services stuff, or a recent model desktop running Ubuntu for workstation purposes.
