I did think about getting a cheap Mac second hand, but then realised that the chances are it wouldn't run OSX Tiger - and Tiger is the only version I want. Maybe Panther would do, but it has to be OSX because all previous MacOS versions were utter crap.

Seriously...OS X 9.0 was the crappage. We had to use it for school (since the old iMacs were so cheap)and it sucked.

Now that Mac OS X Tiger is out, oh baby! Hehe...

Here goes...

On my work computers, Windows XP pro, (theres 2 of those)
I also have a Linux box here that I'm experimenting with,currently using DamnSmallLinux, but would usually use Redhat, currently looking for a good distro that does everything I want very easily... (might be debian).
Theres a windows 95 box on my desk - soon to be Linux.

At home,
Old computer windows 98 (currently never used and may become a Linux box)
Current Computer windows XP pro
Server windows 2003
Dell Laptop - Windows 2000
Mac laptop - OSX

since I use XP the most, I voted that though...and If I can manage to sneak out of the door with one of the old acorn machine I'll soon be using RISC OS (shame I got rid of that avatar!!).
