Default What operating system does your PC use?

Curiosity. I don't know if this is going to let me vote on my own poll, so if not I use Ubuntu 11.10.

Possible points of discussion:

Do you like or dislike your OS of choice?

Why did you choose (or end up with) your current OS?

Is there another OS you are hoping or planning to use in the future?

What was the first operating system you became accustomed to using?

*ahem* I thought the edit time would start from when the poll was posted, oh well.

If you have more than one personal computer or your computer has more than one operating system on it, please vote for whichever you use most frequently.

I run a mac, and have for several years. I'm usually pleased with it- they're quite user friendly. All the mac products work splendidly with each other. They do have downsides, and I am not a raving Apple fangirl... if you want a mac to do something that Apple didn't originally intend, it is an utter pain in the neck to convince it to do whatever it is.

My work machine is Windows and I do know my way around them. I ran a Red Hat linux machine briefly, years ago, at the request of my husband. He wanted a total layperson's opinion on how easy they are to deal with, so he set mine up on it for a few months. (he's a computer guy)

I wouldn't mind trying one of the more widely used distros of Linux, just to have some experience with it. I'm regularly asked to help people with their machines (I work in a library) so some base familiarity with Linux would be nice. Granted I've only ever had one guy with a Linux machine ask anything, and that was "Why can't I get on your wi-fi?" and the answer was "because something is screwed up with our wireless counter that isn't letting ANYONE go ANYWHERE." Linux users tend to know what they're doing....

I've only every used windows OS and though i'm no expert, the familiarity brings me back. It is also the only one i've been able to afford and readily get my hands on. I'm not really much of a computer person.... hell I basicly only use the thing to do some word processing and go on the internet.

Windows 7. Always had Windows. I had no choice when I got my laptop so I end up going from Xp to 7.
Its ok, not use to the set up though cause its much different.I tried finding movie maker but I couldn't find it but then had to download it from somewhere to find it.

I used Windows 95 when I was little, dad's old pc, then I had it then I went from that to Xp later on.
