    What type of operating system do you use and why? OS X, Windows, Linux, Unix... etc.

    I am just wondering what is popular out there and what kind of use do most use it for. Thanks

    Always Windows. It's more compatible with data, it has better interfaces and all-in-all is what I'm used to. I don't think I could switch, unless something brilliant comes along.

    @Indigital - I been with linux for a long time, mainly because when i was in school, i needed something to do my papers and linux was free.  I started using windows xp when the place i work for required me to know it, but i heard that xp was a great os, and the later ones were not as good.  Trying to hunt down my next os

    I've upgraded to windows 7 and like it very much.  I kept my xp boxes running long enough cause vista was crap however I like Windows 7 very easy to use and seems to work well.  I am using the 64bit version and its great. No complaints for me on win 7, but vista was no good.

    After using Windows for almost 20 years, I switched to mac, and now use OS X for everything, but have a copy of Windows 7 for testing web development, and use Linux on my web servers.

    On a daily basis at the office I use Windows 7. At home I use mostly Max OS X with a sprinkle of Windows 7 and a dash of Linus Mint 13. Happy holidays!!

      Whoa that sounds like baking a cake, but windows 7 is foreign to me.  I majored in computers, but now I feel a distant from technology.  It was never something I really like to do, but did it because others were into it.   Happy Holidays!!!
