    What about CP/M 2.0 on a Commodore 128? Which box do I click? Hard to believe that was a dual processor machine...

    Back in the old days I used a CP/M machine called a Hardy 801. Used 8 inch floppy. I think the only programs we used that weren't home grown was VisiCalc and WordStar. Dual drive machine, no hard drive, 1 floppy drive for the program and one for your data. Bleeding edge stuff back then!!

    After total nightmares with win98 I was reluctant to go to XP, but have been very pleased with XP so far. I found with 98 the more you installed the slower it got, and more unstable it got. Although XP is better, I'm starting to find my install running a bit sluggish lately. I am probably due for a fresh re-build to clean things up and regain some performance. I have tinkered with Linux and like how it's evolving, but it's just not there yet as a fully functional desktop (lacks many apps, gaming, etc). OSX is awesome and it's tragic that Microsoft was clever enough to beat them out of the global desktop market. I'd much rather see the world using OSX than XP, but oh well...

    Linux for work and wherever I can get away with it, and windows at home. However, I scavenged a Mac, put OSX on it, and am getting rather attached. I'm just trying to avoid slipping into the Apple reality-distortion field, and ending up as another "I love my Mac" zealot.

    CP/M? Become a Real Man, and upgrade to VAX/VMS. I want Photoshop for VAX so that I can make lineprinter art again.

    I used to do my email on a VAX/VMS machine. I would dial in with Kermit, which was a great piece of software--handled any language, any protocol, any OS, it seemed.

    When my sister was studying animation at RISD she used to run a 3-D graphics program called "WaveFront" in AIX on two RISC stations that IBM donated to the school.

    I gave my vote for Linux because it's my favorite. PocketLinux is really cool and has some interesting possibilities. I've also tried freeBSD. My "main" machine is Windows 2000. I also have an ancient Mac that someone gave me.
