    I'd just like to know who else here uses something other than Micro$oft Windows other than me. I'm using Zenwalk Linux (based on SlackWare)

    Other than my work laptop (which is XP), my computers at home run Ubuntu (Edgy+Beryl), FreeBSD, and OSX (two G4 PowerBooks).

    If I wasn't chained to M3 Game Manager, I wouldn't use XP outside of work.

    Until someone gives me an OS that can work well for games and video (as in as good or better than) I will stick with MS, if it matters I have PCDOS on an old junk 486 I built a few months back.

    I'm with him. Tried using Mac OS but was turned off by lack of game support. Never tried Linux because I honestly don't know where to begin :'(

    a lot of people seem to try ubuntu recently. I had to install Linux for Uni anyways... My notebook currently runs dual boot xp and Edgy. That way I can boot to windows for the odd programms, and do my work in an environment with less games installed. Doesn't prevent from surfing the web instead of doing work though [​IMG]
