Default Which OS are you currently using??

I, Win9x, because it's stable and don't give me problems when I don't need them. I want to try other like Macintosh and Linux, those could be probably better than windows.

Which one are you using?

If you want to try MacOS you should buy Mac to run it on, there is a PC version, but it's nothing compared to the real thing(friend tried it and compared it).

At home dualboot win2k & slackware10.2 on my machine
At work/university win2k & winXP on desktops, slackware10.2 & debian on servers

Well, now it's possible to run Windows XP natively on the Intel Macs. When I do get a Mactel, that will definitely be on my to do list. By then, hopefully complete drivers will be engineered.
