Default What OS do you use currently?

Okay, this is a new poll because the old one was getting outdated, as many people would have changed their primary OS.

Results from old poll.

59.60% - Windows XP
39.39% - Windows Vista
19.70% - Form of linux

I run Vista Ultimate 64 Bit 95% then XP 5% of the time for applications that do not have a Vista driver.

If it wasn't for those few applications I'd fully remove XP.

This forum is pretty anti-Mac as a whole.

I run XP, I see no reason to upgrade to Vista as of yet.

Default Re: (NEW) What OS do you use currently?

I use XP and Gentoo Linux... If it weren't for the fact that gaming is pretty much unpractical in linux, i would ditch XP. Not saying i don't like XP, i like it, but its the FREE part of linux that i like better than being tied to Microsoft...

If i were running servers no doubt it would be Gentoo, or FreeBSD, i've played with it for a few months and i really like it, but for desktop/gaming, not going to work ..

I use XP Pro SP2 Corporate.

Can some one explain why when I turn on my updates it they start to slow my computer down a lot?

When I install I turn them off and my pc runs perfectly. I just don't bother with the updates and haven't for half a year.

Also is there a difference with the corporate version?

The product key can be used more than once.
