    Which operating system do you use and why

    This is not about which os is best but about what you use. I use debian stable as my primary os on my desktop because of how stable it is. I use fedora on my netbook because it has up to date but stable software. I also occasionally us ubuntu on both because it is already set up reasonably well and is easy to use.

    Re: Which operating system do you use and why

    I use Ubuntu, but only update about every year to year and half these days.
    There has to be something really special for me to upgrade on a 6month release version.

    Re: Which operating system do you use and why

    In poll order, Win XP, Ubuntu, OpenBSD and Mac OS X.

    Win XP: Only when needed, which is not often. I have it installed on my desktop and laptop, and also in a VirtualBox on my dedicated server.
    Ubuntu: "Real" ded server OS, primary desktop OS, secondary laptop OS (generally used only when needed). Always the latest release.
    OpenBSD: Router OS.
    Mac OS X: Primary laptop OS.

    Re: Which operating system do you use and why

    I use Windows 7. Mostly because i dont have a Mac yet.

    I use Linux via LiveCDs only lately. Mostly to fix Windows when something happens which seems to be often with this PC (2 Months old and i find myself calling tech support too often).

    Fedora, because it has gnome-shell by default.
