Hello

I am curious what OS are you guys using on your mining computers. Your posts with answers why you are using that particular OS, and what mining software are you using will be much appriciated. I am doing this as a part of research, which will help me to decide what to (do not) do next.

Thank you

The reason I use the LTS edition is that I do not like changing distros every 6 months. Wink

Linux everywhere...

Haven't touched windows for 6 or 7 years...  Currently Ubuntu 13.04

My latest mining computer is a Raspberry pi which runs Raspbian (Debian).

If you want your rig to run stable, and not want to babysit it all the time, there really is not alternative to Linux (or any other unix like OS).

Well i have a windows 7 running rig and after initial setup and debug i don't need to babysit it at all. I think it's just the manner of "administration"

Agreed, and I am not even using Windows Smiley
Just use what OS you are most comfortable with.

windows 7 64-bit

unless it's power starved, then it's ubuntu on a stick

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

I voted Linux, but I actually use Linux and Windows. Right now, Windows is mining on the only GPU I have left in my desktop PC, and all my USB devices are on Linux. As I start using more and more ASICs, Linux will be the only OS I will be mining on.

CGMiner 3.2.1 on all of them.
