I'm curious as to see what Operating System people on GBAtemp use.
I suggested/inspired this
windows 7 64bit all the way
Also to actually contribute to the discussion I have my main computer with Windows XP (yea I know I need to update it) and my laptop has Windows 7 64-bit.
OS X Mountain Lion
Developer Preview 2
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
I don't think I'll ever go Mac. But that's just because of my games and Apple hardware is not as easy to upgrade as PC hardware
I never got that why are there not alot of game ports to Mac and almost all PC games from big companies or little indie groups always just on Windows?
I'm not complaining since I use Windows but i'm just curious.
I would argue linux is deserving of a place among that list (despite the many distributions I will lump it together). Maybe BSD and some of the others would fall under other but linux still makes that list in my estimation.
Anyhow whatever does the job I need it to do is what I use and what I install for clients- typically this means a version of XP (still a corporate standard and a bit cheaper/more commonly existing than corporate grade 7), a version of XBMC (people really seem to have got into media players of late), a version of debian (servers and such although I have been meaning to look at centOS more) or linux mint (desktops) or a version of opensuse (mainly as it winds into selinux well- people wanting secure laptops and such for banking and travelling). Outside of those that like toys, are lovingly referred to as the coloured pencil departments and/or stuff like ipads (they do have nice email and a halfway acceptable browser) though nobody has really gone for apple- if you are going to lump yourself with incompatible software or just need an OS that does a browser and VNC/RDP you might as well get one you do not have to pay for (both in software and limited selection of hardware).
After this it seems even I have got roped into virtualisation (next step- evaluating proxmox for corporate use) which makes this even more meaningless/goes towards reducing OS to an application/library/API level which for my money can not happen soon enough.
Windows 7 (64bit) at home (for gaming and developing in .net).
Mac OS X 10.5.8 at work (because that's what they use here).
Ubuntu 11.10 on my laptop (because it's an old laptop, and ubuntu is pretty lightweight).
depends on machine choice
Windows 7 Pro
Windows 7 ultimate 64
Mac OSX 10.4 (yeas oldie)
Android Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.3)
Let me choose more than one. Because I use Lion and Windows 7.
Windows 7 (32bit)
Android. On the bus to work.
I use windows 7 64bit.
Windows 7 or a buntu distro. Depends on the type of work I need done. inb4arch
Either Windows 7 or Ubuntu/Linux.
Mac OS X Lion usually, Windows 7 for some games and Windows apps, Windows XP for older games...
Windows 7 64bit. Tempted to 'upgrade' to Windows 8 but I hate the metro / tablet-based style.
Windows 7 32bit, even though my computer can handle 64... currently too lazy to back up my stuff and reinstall.
