Which OS are you using, and which will you be using next year
I'm curious to see what are people here using for operating systems, and what they plan to be using in a year.
I'm using Windows XP MCE 05 now and have Vista 32 Premium on the way, I'm not sure what I'll do with the Vista 32 (install it right away/wait a bit/ install it on a second drive) but I do reckon that in a year I will be making the switch to 64.
Laptop: Windows XP Pro
Home PC #1: Windows XP Home
Home PC #2: Windows XP Home
Work PCs (20 of them): Windows XP Pro
Work PCs (4 of them): Windows 2000
Work (servers): Windows Server 2003
Vista = Disaster for professional oriented computers. Period.
Which will I be using next year: I don't plan on changing.
Windows XP Pro
XP Pro w/Sp1
I'll be switching over to linux as soon as I can get a few hard drives to backup my drives onto another as linux doesn't like NTFS.
Ahhhh...sp1, eh? shall we say yarrrrr?
Office Computer: XP Pro SP2
HTPC #1: MCE
HTPC #2 (Currently Out of Commission): MCE
Crappy Laptop: XP Pro SP2
HTPC #2: Vista Ultimate
Main rig : Dual booting XP Pro SP2 / Vista ultimate (rarely use it)
Server : Windows XP Pro SP2
Next year ? Probably XP , unless anything major happens.
Main Rig: Gentoo 2006.1
Bench Rig 1: XP Pro SP2 * 2, Vista * 5, Gentoo 2006.1
Bench Rig 2: XP Pro SP2, Vista, Gentoo 2006.1
Laptop: Gentoo 2006.1
Vista is still a waste of time as far as I am concerned... just no real reason to upgrade. I've had so many problems, I try to avoid using it entirely. In a year I am hoping it will be a LOT better.
XP home X3
XP MCE on the new HP (Dual boot with Suse, but I still haven't had much chance to play with it yet)
XP pro on the laptop
I can't see upgrading to Vista any time soon. Not only does it not really offer me anything I'm looking for, I'm a bit leery of the stronger DRM it's not yet using, but which is coded and just waiting for content providers to enable.
