I have a dual boot laptop. Windows Vista (32bit) and debian (64 bit lenny)
Now that adobe released a 64 bit flash player and Sun released a 64 bit Java, it is not too bad of a system.

Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction.

I run vista home premium on my laptop (The one that came with it ), and server 2008 on my stationary, the one i use all of the time...
Both are x86 versions, as 2GB of ram is plenty if you tweak your OS alot, which i love to do

I run Windows Vista (Unfortunately); I thought microsoft got it right with XP and spent too much time trying to make Vista look like a Mac. Thinking of partitioning my hard disc to run Linux. Anyone got thoughts on it?

as long as your not into gaming a lot linux is wonderful Jenova, you can run some games on linux but not many, unless you include flash games and stuff like that. i dont even run anti-virus on my linux and never had a virus on it :)

I do like gaming, but I guess that's the point of partitioning. It does mean that I can write java code easily. Trying to do it on windows is annoying, takes forever to compile and i can't run simulations properly. Any tips on progs or methods of writing java in windows?

See, even as a Mac user, I do respect XP as a Solid and Fairly Stable offering from Microcock. It was by far the pinnacle of MS's software programmers work in ripping off OS/9-X
