Fedora Linux for me on the desktop, Maemo Linux on my phone, OS/X for the rest of the family. But my webhost uses FreeBSD.

I run Windows 7 on my main computer, though I use Linux through ssh nearly every day.

Too many of my favorite applications are Windows-only, or I might consider switching.

At work Windows Vista  (not my choice, don't shoot me).
At home, mostly Ubuntu, before I switched to ubuntu it was mainly Opensuse.
And puppy linux for fun.

Only for graphic work I switch to Windows 7, I would want a Mac for that, but they are to expensive imo.

So voted for GNU/Linux  Smiley

Forced to use Windows XP at home - I am a music composer and all those cool music programs (Reason, Ableton, Sound Forge etc.) are mostly for Windows (or MAC, but I can't afford another machine). I am planning on having a dual-boot system soon and going to use Ubuntu (thanks to your advice) & XP then.

At work Linux OpenSUSE, Debian and Windows XP.

Voted Windows.

A laptop (IBM Thinkpad X31) with Debian GNU/Linux (sid).

On the dedicated server I'm renting to "just a man", I also installed Debian ("squeeze" this time).

I'm curious about Debian GNU/kFreeBSD though, but since I only have one computer for my everyday use, I can't try it (well I could in a VM, but I would need more than 512 MB RAM for that).

You seem to have it a strange way round. Why?

Running Ubuntu 10.10 Server on my servers and OpenSUSE 11.3 on my desktops.  A couple of desktops dual boot to Windows XP which I occasionally need for certain programs.  I have way too many computers.  Undecided

For desktop I run Server 2008R2 converted to workstation (c2d, 4GB, garden variety of hard drives) and win7 on the netbook (aspire one).  Sometimes boot up PuppyLinux on the netbook.  Everything else local is virtual machines.  On the production servers hosted offsite I run CentOS and Ubuntu Server.

Couple years back I switched to mac. Not by choice - I had a need for one and opportunity came up to get a MacBook Pro 15" top of the range for £800. Now, I would never buy a windows/linux laptop again. It is powerfull, robust, great for programming and audio/video editing. I also have vmware on it with 2x win 7 machines and one linux. You can play with it and test things out. It takes just minutes to revert changes.

As for Desktops and everyday use, I have to agree with vladimir windows must be the one to go for. I have one at home and it's great for checking emails, browsing net, etc.

Also, I have few headless servers out there in the wild and am running CentOS on them. I had some experience with Windows Servers, but you'd have to shoot me before I touch them again.

In all, I think different operating systems are good for different things. There isn't a one fits all solution

How is Mac a superior system for programming and audio/video editing than Linux and Windows.

It is superior to Windows, because it comes with main languages preinstalled, which is very important for begginers. I'll admit - Linux is more suitable for programming for advanced users. At a second thought mac can probably do everything linux can, but the price tag renders it less desirable
What concerns audio/video editing, "media people" are major apple target audience. Laptops come with Firewire interface, which is vital in large file transfer and network colaboration projects. Most proffesional software is designed for OS X. For example Pro Tools, Avid, Affter effects, Photoshop - if I'm not mistaken, native platform for all these products is OS X. You can run them on Windows, but its a nightmare. Majority of post productions houses run OS X

I use Windows XP (just went from sp2 to sp3 a couple of weeks ago, living life in the fast lane)... I can see that Win 7 would be good but have never found the right time to upgrade.
