    I have some questions about computer users settings and specs, so I'll use here as my audience, if it isn't minded.

    Earlier a poll on OS was done. Since most users fell into two broad catagories, I'm interested to see the specifics of those two.

    Please post the OS you use the most. If your office and work are different, I think posting the lesser of the two would be better, because I really wanna see who uses win 95 and 98 versus the higher end ones. SO post the lower of the two if they're different.

    At home I'm currently using Windows XP Pro. At uni I use Windows 2000 or the monstrous Unix network, which has more storage than the rest of the world put together (well, maybe not quite that much).

    Then people get post counts, I don't think polls and general questions should get to count towards posts, anyways...

    I chose Windows 98 because my dad doesn't like XP, or 2K, or linux:frown: When I go to college I'm switching to XP and probably dual-booting with linux.

    win98 seems horrendous to me compared to XP (pro) which I'm on now.

    This should be in technology if you have question about computer users settings and specs... I suppose it is up to zero though but it fits much better in tech.
