What OS are you using?

I'm using Win 98 right now but a friend of mine says that 2000 is awesome even though it is meant for business applications. Sorry I left out XP.

Edited to say: ebalorate=elaborate.

I am running ME and so far it is the most stable Windows product I have used. I have not had a single crash or problem and I beat the hell out of my computer(I use it on average 14 hours a day). I am quite happy with it.

I rarely have blue screen or crashes, but I just have this gut feeling it could be much faster....

With 36 votes, I'm surprised that there are no Linux users represented. I thought they were supposed to be everywhere.

I'm using Mac OS 9.2 and the latest build of OS X. So far i am very impressed with OS X. Early adopters complained about slow response time, slow progam opening, etc., but this version seems to work almost as nice as X.1 did during the Macworld Expo demonstration. I'm sure it beats the crap out of that pathetic Windows rip-off version you all will be suffering with in a few months

Running WinME on this machine. As a side note, did you know you cannot upgrade from ME to Win2K? Pisser.

That sucks. I was hoping to change O/S's soon.

You can always dual boot. You probably want to anyway?

Or Windows 95.

I'm actually running Win95 on one of my machines, but since my MAIN computer uses Win2k, I voted for that.

I went with other since there isn't any way to make multiple selections. I'm running Win2000 Server, Win2000 Pro, WinXP beta, WinNT, IRIX, Solaris, Linux, and DOS 6.22 to support Netware 4.11. There are probable one or two others that I've missed too.

Haha, I gotta stick my nose out. I'm running Mac OS X and 9.1 on two partitions, also have a Windows 2000 emulator and a Linux on a second drive.

But guess which one I voted for?

Oh, and why do I see parts of the bar graph when there is a 0% for no votes next to a choice?

Just got Windows ME on my new computer, but I still have Windows 98 on the other, and Windows NT at work. I voted ME nevertheless.
