windows xp on my dell inspirion e1505 :), windows xp on my dell inspiron 8200, and Windows 3.11 on my Packard Bell Legend 933, because I like playing around with the MS-DOS command prompt. Hehehe.

I use Windows XP, but I have Ubuntu on my other Hard Drive. I am sort of looking for a new main OS, Linux or Windows 7. Can anyone help me out on this?

Well, I might getting crucified from both sides here (since it's pretty common knowledge that they hate each other)
My opinion is simply this, what would you like to use it for?

I prefer Windows for my own personal use, compatibility issues are minimum, friends can come over and use my internet connection, all the applications I need for work are pretty much 100% compatible with Windows.

That being said, my mail server is running Linux, which is awesome, I haven't needed to restart it in over 2 years now, MS can't beat that for compatibility, all my development is also done remotely, from Windows to a Linux server.

In short, there are some places where Linux loses hands down to Microsoft (yes I said it) and there are some places where Microsoft can't even compete against Linux. And I have found very very few excuses credible enough for someone to use Mac. (In my opinion "it looks cool man" doesn't count as a good basis for choosing your OS)

In my opinion, it all depends on what you want to do on the machine. It should be the best option available for you.

I'm surprised how many of you use Windows. If that's what you prefer, that's great.. But you're missing out if you aren't using a *nix based system, imo.

I use Arch Linux on my desktops. On a spare hardrive I installed XP just to practice things on it. On my laptop I used Ubuntu for comfort and ease of use.
