    Vote! Kubuntu for me. I decided to change since I was fed up with all the Microsoft shit. For the first months I had a partition for Kubuntu and one for Windows XP, but after a while I completely formatted the Windows partition. I have been a happy guy since then. What about you?

    Ugh you gone and done it. You do know that 'mac' is hardware no a OS. If you mean the OS which is found on a mac it is OS X.

    Mac = Hardware
    OS X = Operative System

    I knew you would do that when i clicked on the topic.

    Sorry, I fixed that. I never had a Mac so I don't know anything about it; sorry again but there was no need to be so harsh.

    I voted Mac OS X. My favorite setup is a 24'' iMac with an attached 22'' monitor. I know that most people think that OS X is for n00bs and such, but I actually find that it's the easiest OS to customize and create some really tight workflows. It's keyboard shortcuts are also second to none.

    Before anyone brings it up by the way, my Mac runs Crysis ;P

    That being said, I do also own an old HP TC1100 Tablet PC. The little guy's got an ancient Pentium M processor on it, and only 512 ram, but I still went out of my way to install Windows Vista on it. People give Vista way too much crap.

    The tablet's also dual booted with Ubuntu on there running the new Netbook Remix packages. It's nice having linux on there for when I quickly just need something done.

    So... Maybe there should have been an all of the above box XD? For me, operating systems are just a means to get things done. I don't have to be on a specific system to be able to use it, and they all have their strengths and weaknesses.

    *nix can be a variety of of operating systems based on a unix subsystem


    its funny looking in this sort of place how the 1% market share of OSX turns out to be much bigger in tech circles

    Mac OS X. I don't really have a problem with Windows XP/Vista. In fact, I like Vista. I just prefer Mac OS X. I'm building a new Hackintosh with 10.5.5 to replace the old PIII XP torrent/usenet box.
