    Re: What OS do you use and which is best?

    As of last year I run a dual boot Linux/Windows Vista but I only use Windows for a few appliations that I need to run for work. Otherwise, 99% Linux, 1% Windows. I find that Windows is a bloated disaster since Win98 I refuse to pay for crap. I use it a few times and I get viruses -- so I'd say that some of the newer versions of Linux like Ubuntu Koala which is free, can and should start replacing Windows. MAC O/S variants and Linux are very close and I'd suggest using anything before Windows.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I use Vista because that's what was on this drive when I assembled this francin'puter.

    I know of the Microsoft line of Oss, and if others exist I'm to lazy to know or care.

    A part of what I do is windows support, so I tend to not have problems with it. (If I did, I wouldn't be good at my job)

    Secretly though, I like linux better

    Still using XP.

    I have a Vista Business and a 7 Pro lying around I got discounted via my alma mater. But I haven't bothered to install either.

    Google Chrome is a browser and it is awesome. I use it, too.

    My OS is Windows Vista. Works fine for me.

    Re: What OS do you use and which is best?

    I have Vista.

    Has anybody gotten this new update that takes hours? I don;t know exactly how long it took but I saw it before bed and woke up it was still going! I eventually had to pull the plug which it warned not to do. I looked it up and everybody was having problems.

    I'm sorry but you need to make an appointment with me if you're going to leave me hanging without a computer for so long.

    I'm very important ya know.

    I really love Chrome. It's very quick and unobtrusive. I rarely use Firefox any more and for a long time, it was the only browser I'd use. I even tried Opera for awhile but Chrome is much better, IMHO.

    I run Winsucks but only because Linux can't support the games I want to play yet. I keep hoping they'll be able to soon.
