Lets see here, I use ProTools, Acid, Soundforge, Wavelab, T-RACKS 24 and a few others. I use a ton of vsts and plugins also on top of that which would be way too many to name here (I have over 400 plugins, DX and VST, that I use).

XP Home Edition on this computer (notebook), and Windows 95 on the PC upstairs I use for work-related matters (tests, grade lists, etc.). I've been using the 95 since 1997, and it has never crashed. Wish I could say the same about XP.

When I couldn't get 98 again after I switched to ME (ugh, that sucked), I considered 2000, but I heard there could be quite a few problems with games. I think I stuck with ME for a while just for that.

Haven't had problems with games like Warcraft3, Gayax, Lineage, or DO Online with XP Pro. I can play old DOS games with DOSBox.

XP -- though I am becoming more and more curious about Linux.

I linux for what it is, but it still has a way to go for the laymen to understand it , however its getting closer each month. I've ran linux for 5 years now and I still have questions about it. For beginners I would recommend either Red Hat or Mandrake. I loved the Corel Linux, but I'm not sure if they still produce it or not.

Meh, you can set up a *nix system to look just like Windoze if you want to.

But FreeBSD > Linux :P

XP Pro at home, 2000 at work.

On my computer we use Windows ME and I love it to bits, and on our laptop we use Windows XP which I also like.

Mac OS11. I love my G4 (I'm a digital design student...this computer is my life).

OS 11 ?

I thought the latest was OS X (X = 10)?

Since this is my first computer, I have no basis for comparison. Xp has worked just fine, for me and in 2 1/2 years, my computer has never crashed or had a virus. I download all of the updates, as they come in.

I'm using Windows 98 SE on my current computer. On previious computers, I have used Windows 3.1 and Windows 95. I have tried various distributions of Linux (Slackware 9.1, MEPIS, and SUSE 9.1), but I could never get sound or video to work correctly. I also had troubles "installing" software which is a breeze in the Windows world.

I would DIE (well, maybe not die, persay) without my Mac OSX. I have the 'Panther' variety, I guess I'm not cool enough for 'Tiger'...maybe it's a sign that the version of the OS is named after (big) cats!!

Windows XP Pro
post #52 of 58
I now have Windows 98
post #53 of 58
My vote on the poll was for Windows 98 SE -- it's no longer true! At home I have Windows XP; at work, Windows 2000.

I have a split hard drive for OSX and OS9 on my mac and just OSX (for now) on my book!

Linux, since 1996. Several years with Red Hat, then I jumped over to Slackware. I've dabbled in Windows for professional reasons, but the only one I ever came close to actually liking was 2000.

I had Windows 98 SE at home but had problems with my digital camera software so last week I upgraded to windows 200 pro. The BIG problem is I "lost" my modem and I have the patch on my office computer big having major problems installing it at home.
What I would like to do is uninstall this and use my recovery disks to go bad to 98SE fix a whole bunch of stuff and reinstall 2000 Pro as am not planning on getting a new computer until spring!! Any helps would be appreciated.
