    Never herd of a company named M$ or Micro$oft.

    I use a product from a company named Microsoft though called Windows XP. I also use Ubuntu and PC-BSD and whatever else I feel like messing with.

    Hmm, intentional misspelling of 'MS' and 'Microsoft'.

    This means that either you're...

    Ah, 13. Yes, that would explain it.

    I love how people put a dollar sign in Microsoft. It's because they make money. I get it! They're a company, they're out to make money to be able to live.

    I have XP and ubuntu but I don't use ubuntu since there is not a lot of game support.

    I'm mostly using my iBook G4 with MacOS X but I've got a PC running WinXP aswell. Game support isn't important for me, though.

    Just switched to Ubuntu last week. I had been giving it thought for the past 2-3 years, but never switched because of lack of compatibility for my old laptop's wireless card. Still dual-booting for the other people who use the computer and a few apps that won't work in wine, but I doubt that I'm going to be switching back anytime soon.

    Age is a great way to find out how smart(or stupid) you are.

    Ah, 27. That doesn't quite explain what is an adult doing here at a gaming community [​IMG]

    Seriously, I only wrote it this way since there wasn't enough space in the title of the topic to fit "Microsoft", so I put M$ because people instantly recognize it as Microsoft. [​IMG]

    I'm running Win98 on my main computer which MS no longer supports, does that count? I still haven't seen a compelling reason to shell out the $$$ for XP and Win98 has better compatibility with all my old Dos games and various hardware.

    My main machine has OS X, but I've ran many different OS'es such as yellow dog, SUSE, ubuntu and fedora core...oh yeah and I have winXP somewhere but I always use that in classic mode, people forget that windows, *even vista* still runs under DOS :S word '97 was the best office bundle evar & winNT was the best release IMHO.
