Windows, Mac or Linux? Which do you use?
« on: August 16, 2010, 06:15:10 pm »

Just curious to see what OS the mod's / admins and users use/prefer and why?

PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / LSRecovery.exe file.

Windows 7 Professional x64.

 

I always sticked with Windows since the beginning. Probably because of a gaming purpose and because I'm too used to Windows software to switch to another OS.

MAC :O Ugghh. I have to say its the one OS that i cannot stand.

Personlly i use a mixture of Linux / Windows. Mainly Linux now since i'm not into gaming and so have no reason to use Windows anymore.

On my main PC i have XP Pro 32bit, Fedora 13 and Win 7 Ultimate 32bit.

I use Mac for managing web sites and music/graphic-related things (music files, burning CDs, making band posters), and PC for business, geneology, and home security devices.

What is everyone else using - and how sophisticated is your network?

nice setup!   I'll have to work on a layout for mine and post it. I have security cams and door/window sensors built in to my setup, which also connect to the TVs, so I can view in and out side my house from my TVs and even offsite (like from work).

We're running three Mac OS X 10.6 machines here.  (me: MacBook Pro, wife: MacBook, daughter: Mini)  I was initially attracted to OS X due to the Unix underpinnings.  At that time it was wayyyy more robust than Windows.  I'd hoped to do some personal software development, but have not gotten around to it, due to job and family pressures.   At $DAYJOB, I work on all manner of Unix/Linux systems and a Windows XP as my workstation (although I spend most of my time on it in telnet/ssh...)   My MBP serves as a secondary workstation when I'm on the job.

[Calling Dr Memory...]

FYI, I am on a MacBook Pro (2011 vintage, running Mavericks), but also use a G5 Mac Pro (OSX 10.5.8) and an iMac (10.7.5) and a Linux box (subject to fluctuation). My wife has a G5 Mac Pro, also with 10.5.8, a Mac Mini (10.6.8), and my old MacBook (10.6.8).

Bottom line: I gave my wife a LS-XL NAS for her birthday (BIG thrill!), especially happy since it says it supports 10.3.9 and later. Now, it looks like it's restricted to Intel CPUs only, not PPC. Any further suggestions? (and will look for another place to post this last block).
