What Operating Systems (OS) have you used?
What was your favourite?

I'll start....

DOS -->> well the ones in windows, and some other one which I don't know the version of.

Win 3.11

Win 95

Win 98se -->> used extensively and know it quite well.

Win ME -->> a couple of times at high school

Win 2000 Pro

Win XP Pro -->> not used for all that long and still learning.

Mandrake 8.2 -->> learnt the basic commands, not sure if I passed the test yet.

RedHat 7.3 -->> Very briefly

Macintosh -->> what ever version we had at that school

Other -->> Atari something, Amiga something, but mainly just for playing games on.


Favourite would be XP Pro but I still fire up a DOS window a lot and do stuff in their.

did nobody use a C64 or an Amiga?? :)

My favourite was the Sega SC3000H. I still have the Sega Basic manual floating around somewhere...

My own list would be something along the lines of

Sega SC3000H OS (if it had one?!?!)
C64 OS (whatever that might be)
Amiga Workbench (I remember someone in a 'puter shop asking if the "Workbench" listed in the specs meant the desk was included hehe)
Mac OS Something (back in the late 80's)
A little DOS here and there
Windows 3.11
Windows 95
Windows 98
Windows ME (didn't last long)
Windows 2000 Pro
BeOS (Pretty)
Knoppix :)

I'm currently running RedHat Linux 7.3 and Win 98SE on this machine.

My favourite? In some ways I have a soft spot for Win 98SE. It's my old faithful that I keep returning to, having had forays into Win2K and WinME. 98SE does the job for me.

Sinclair ZX Spectrum! What a machine!
16k of RAM but was later upgraded to 48k!!!
You could have dinner while waiting for a game to load from tapes!

Still got a couple of them somewhere, should really fire one up and see if it still goes.
