    Note: Please do not start Flame wars over Mac vs PC or Mac vs Linux...which is lame.. I want to watch out for peoples Safety :)

    And Why do you use Unix Based OS?

    I use Windows XP (Home, and Media), Windows Vista, Kubuntu, And Ubuntu

    I use Ubuntu and Kubuntu because they are awesome and easy to navigate..lol I got my Kubuntu Disk today :)

    I use Xp Pro(32bit). It was my first OS on my first "real" PC. I used Windows 95 for a few months a long time ago, but that PC was ancient with it's 33Mhz CPU! I'm going to give Ubuntu a look after all the stuff heard about it, and seeing a few YouTube videos.

    I use vista really, but had a short stint w/ mythbuntu for an htpc that didn't pan out. I liked the interface a lot though, and will revisit it once I get a tv worthy of messing w/.

    An embedded Linux on my NAS :)

    Also, since this is about Unix based OSes, why is everyone listing their Windows version? Besides, how is Unix related to a mac vs PC discussion?

    Ubuntu, was using it on my old Pentium 4 Dell laptop for a few years because I got sick of Windows. I tried it on my new system but the mobo is cheap and Ubuntu had no graphics support for it :(

    Mythtv is a linux front-end that handles tv recording and all around media center purposes. Mythbuntu is basically just ubuntu w/ mythtv already installed, providing the back-end as well and other features that come w/ a full os if needed. I heard about it and had some extra stuff lying around so I gave it a shot. Liked the interface and proposed capabilities, unfortunately my tv is too old to have anything resembling image quality on it, so I've abandoned it for now. :(

    I use Win XP, Vista HP x64, Fedora 9, and OS X.5. I use OS X just because I like it a lot, Fedora because I like to tinker, and Windows for compatibility.
