    I guess any Linux goes into Other, so I voted for that.

      I use Windows 3.0, 3.1 (Note: I just got both upgraded to 95 a few days ago), 95, 98, ME (sometimes, when I upgrade my 98), 2000 (at at school), XP Home, XP Pro, Mac OS 9, Vector Linux, Microsoft Bob (RARELY)

      My favorites would be XP

        I noticed the poll asks which OS you use and if you like it... how are we supposed to specifiy if we like it?

        Microsoft Bob? Ew..

        I use XP but, Win98SE was the best ever for it's time.

        I still think a good old 3.5 floppy drive and PS/2
        Keyboard and mouse can save your *censored* when all
        else fails.

        How great to sell a computer that only has USB
        Keyboard and mouse, no floppy drive,and a
        hidden partition on the same drive in case the
        drive fails. :-?

        I forgot then they don't give you an install disk. ;D

        SNAP!

        XP Pro
        I like it, but it is prone to odd failures now and again
        First thing I did was disable pretty much all the eye candy so it looks like Win2k, I hate all that useless stuff (who really needs a green start button?  And a blue taskbar?)
        I also like Win2k, but any earlier Windows than that hold many bad memories for me
        Never tried any other operating systems although I'm thinking about making the switch to Linux soon when I've got some time

          I use a dual-boot system: XP Pro and Vista Ultimate.
          I actually like Vista: might buy it when it becomes available!

          You know, honestly, I like how Microsoft Windows 3.1, and 3.11 deals with crashes.
          Just press ALT+CTRL+DEL when something in front of you freezes, and press enter to end the defunct app, and all will be better within 25 seconds.

          My laptop's running XP Home.

          One desktop's running 2000 and the other 98.

          We used to run Ubuntu Linux on one of the desktops but for a family it just doesn't work well. ("Why does xyz not work on this thing?")

              Well, I use Windows XP home and Professional, and I prefer Professional more. But I miss the good Old days Of Windows 98 and 98se
