Title pretty much says it all. Which operating systems and versions/distros do you use?

I use Crunchbang Linux (Debian w/ openbox and some amazing out-of-the-box configs and themes)

I also use a Chromebook with Ubuntu XFCE when I need portability and/or decent battery life.

1.elementary os on my main "workstation"
 -i fell in love with this distro a few months ago and absolutely love it. only thing that drives me crazy is inability to place desktop items and inability to add unsigned packages/binaries/executables to the dock.

2. windows8 for ease of use with my block erupters/windows compiling jobs. i use this computer most of the time because its newer and faster than my others.
- once i installed classic shell, it made it much easier for me to work with windows 8.
-malware bytes pisses me off to no end with its constant warnings about some peer i'm connnected to in <insertcoinnamehere/utorrent> network.
3.ubuntu server
- just cuz its probably the best server os ever
4.tinycorelinux on my i586 dell slow-as-shitbook
-its ok i guess, pretty useless if you're a linux newb, but intriguing if you're a nerd

I dual boot Manjaro Linux along with Win 7 Ultimate. Ihave a media pc in the den that has Win 7 cause I need WMC to support the DVB-s Sat Tuner software I use. I got sick of removing malware on a regular basis, so I rarely use windows unless I feel the urge to game. I have a Media server running a Slackware Distro that has been running 24/7 for three years without a hitch. I have 20TB of Movies and TV on it.

Pssh. Windows' first foray into PCs was to have these big sub-$200 PoS PCs stacked up in humble cubes, displayed in sexy brown cardboard boxes with nothing on those boxes but hard-to-see writing (both in English and Chinese) and otherwise unadvertised. They had the wonderful LindowsOS on them.

I was a Ubuntu fan boy, until that went to the Unity Desktop. I have tried many distros. Zorin OS is what I have got a few friend on that had older hardware and I grew tired of cleaning malware off every month or two, you have a more windows like user experience.

For user friendly Zorin OS is my top pick. Second would be Linux Mint For fast light and clean, I am quickly becoming a Arch convert, by way of Manjaro. I have it running on a single core AMD with 1gig ram and the performance is not much worse in general internet use, than my 8 core 16gig AMD rig running Windows 7.

Puppy Linux for my netbook, Arch Linux for my dedicated server, and Windows 7 for my home desktop. Unfortunately I installed Win7 on my desktop in a rush after uninstalling Windows 8 (received this thing from someone else), which left me with a lot of driver issues. Planning to re-install soon, maybe alongside a dual-boot Linux but not sure which distro yet.

i think it was either  mint 11 or 13 that had the gparted bug where it would overwrite the mbr, making your drive unbootable. its been so long i can't remember. that being said, i would love i would love to have Elementary os with cinnamon desktop and taskbar. ]the main thing i love about elementary os is how light weight it is and the terminal has a tabbed interface, which i love.

No, it is not a lot by governments, Microsoft gets special deals with governments to push Windows into every box used in government computers all around the world, they go in, invest a couple million in some bullshit to program to teach kids or elderly people using computers and then the got a 70 million, 10 years contract for nearly every machine used in government's computers.

Shit world, I know...


Anyway, I need the lightest distro/configuration you guys can suggest, easy to maintain and updated software, currently running debian jessie, LXDE, very few services, zram, kernel 3.2.0, noatime, preload and all that shit, what can I do more to improve performance even more?

Openbox + tint2? Or some other taskbar? Linux Mint Debian?

Windows 8 was very disappointing. More limited than 7 and very confusing interface.
Yeesh. I was out at tech-illiterate family members' house yesterday. They got a new laptop, so everything had to be set up for them. I actually had to Google how to shut the fucking thing down. Cheesy

That's not the worst part. For about five minutes, I couldn't figure out how to get to the desktop. I thought they actually forced users to only use what was presented to them in that goofy mobile phone tile display. I tried using Internet Explorer from that tile display, and it pops up some stripped-down always-fullscreen version, and I couldn't figure out how to configure it just to set the damned home page because there's no settings icon or box to click. Then I tried going back to the tile display and right-clicking the IE icon - still no way to configure it. I was about ready to give up within the first five minutes.

When Win8 installs (and again as the lumbering behemoth slowly boots), they have about three different phrases for "getting ready" in the progress report. No percentages, no ETA, just different phases of "readiness." I was laughing a lot yesterday - probably would've been hysterical if I weren't sober. I don't know what the Hell they were thinking when so many users still can't even figure out why the displayed time's wrong when "I thought it's set automatically by the time-keeper." Who would ever think it's a good idea to HIDE information and options in a GUI? Fucking Dwarf Fortress is easier to get a grasp on...

Idunno, though. It was like explaining Bitcoin to someone who's never even used a credit card or online bank, and never took an economics class. "Scott - it's saying our Internet's bad. We only got two bars!" "That's just the router. It doesn't actually indicate the strength of your Internet connection, just your wifi connection to the router." "Scott - you hear me? I said the computer says our Internet ain't no good! You need'ta call them!" They were testing me, man...

ETA: Still in the mood to bitch, so here's one last snippet of conversation yesterday. "So what kinda computer I got?" "Uh, a laptop." "Pssh I know that. I mean is it name-brand or not?" "Well, it's HP, so yeah. Hewlett Packard..."

Title pretty much says it all. Which operating systems and versions/distros do you use?


Proud RealityOSTM user here... it's full of bugs and security holes but has zero latency and is 100% free open source (although the source is difficult to understand).

Switched over to Ubuntu a month ago.
Works good although some drivers are unavailable and that is really irritating.
Everything works though but my mouse doesn't work like it should.

If it were Linux, someone would have forked Windows at XP and kept maintaining it. Too bad it's closed source so you have to put up with all that bullshit  Wink

I dont bellieve anything will happens after they stop supporting it in April 2014. After all, it had 15 years of security patches applied, what could go wrong  ? Tongue

It will remain nice lightweight OS even april 2014

If that were the case Windows 3.1 should be the best OS ever.

I've decided to switch over to Linux next time I buy/build my next comp or next time I format.

My reasons are to support open source, but primarily for privacy/security.  I'm not a programmer, but I'm reasonable knowledgeable, and have become a privacy nut the past year or two.  I was thinking of Quebes OS for obvious reasons, but then I was thinking there might be more options on more mainstream/compatible distros.  (I got the impression that many distros are different enough that software often is not compatible.)

Privacy and security and network and access/permission control is my number one priority, followed by stability.  And though not a programmer, I consider myself really good with computers and am confident in my ability to google and fix my own problems-- that being said, I do want something that is kind of intuitive for people who think like programmers.  I like things that "just work" and are intuitive to troubleshoot when they don't.

What Linux distro would you guys recommend?  Right now, I'm thinking of:  Quebes, Ubuntu, Elementary, Mint, Manjaro, or just stock Arch that I spend a lot of time on at the beginning.

My reasons are to support open source, but primarily for privacy/security.  I'm not a programmer, but I'm reasonable knowledgeable, and have become a privacy nut the past year or two.  I was thinking of Quebes OS for obvious reasons, but then I was thinking there might be more options on more mainstream/compatible distros.  (I got the impression that many distros are different enough that software often is not compatible.)

Privacy and security and network and access/permission control is my number one priority, followed by stability.  And though not a programmer, I consider myself really good with computers and am confident in my ability to google and fix my own problems-- that being said, I do want something that is kind of intuitive for people who think like programmers.  I like things that "just work" and are intuitive to troubleshoot when they don't.

What Linux distro would you guys recommend?  Right now, I'm thinking of:  Quebes, Ubuntu, Elementary, Mint, Manjaro, or just stock Arch that I spend a lot of time on at the beginning.

i think Mint or Elementary are good choice, and Arch Linux if you want to learning more about Linux. dont worry Arch Wikis will assist you.  Wink

I've thinking to getting a laptop soon. But, it has windows 8 already installed. I have experinced windows 8 and I think it's shocking. I don't like the layout of it at all. But, can I get some input from you guys? Is the interface good when you get used to it? I didn't spend much time of it because


Windows 8 layout is the same shit as android or apple, you cant really do much here. Good old Windows 7

I have never tried Quebes OS but I went went Manjaro for personal use, dual booted with Win7.
Elmentary OS and Zorin OS are very intuitive . I give Zorin the edge, in that you can make your UI like Windows, Mac or the OS of your choice with a single click.

Ubuntu is a waste of one's finite life. Buggy, broken support for many devices, exploitable, half-made, unpleasant to use, terrible community.

That said, I use and love one of it's derivatives: Mint.

OSX 10.6. Upgraded the other partition to 10.9 but haven't gotten around to seeing if it needs more than 2GB RAM to work smoothly and make it worth backing up this one and trying a migration.

ETA: So far 10.9, after migrating from my fresh backup of 10.6, seems more peppy, likely because of App Nap/compressed memory (http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/06/12/compressed-memory-in-os-x-109-mavericks-aims-to-free-ram-extend-battery-life). Since I only have the stock 2GB RAM in the Mac Mini, I held back on 10.7-.8 after seeing reviews about them being so bloated that they needed 4-8 GB minimum despite the official minimum system requirement of 2.

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.

Hey, how's Linux Mint (debian or not) ? I've been planning to install it, just haven't had the courage to do so. hehehehe. I mean, what can be worse than running DBAN on your computers drive, it's just data.

I use DBAN on every new computer, just to wipe it clean, and also on old drives, before I re-purpose them. I just use the quick wipe, no need for anything more than 1 pass.

XP is good when it is fresh, but in couple of months it gets many bugs and it is slow. Win 8 is the bes OS, requires less resources than any other windows OS

Windows kernel works on every machine, even older ones.

Linux distros hiccup on less known/old hardware.

In the recent year I had two cases where Linux falls flat on unknown hardware.
But it's free of course, for some it's hard to beat.

That's because the vast majority of manufacturers only support Windows...

Window malware is gettting out of hand. I do  virus/malware cleanups for spare change.
I see more and more devious malware,ransomware and rooted window boxes lately.

The average user, is probably better off with MacOS and the advanced or expert user who is adverse to overprice Apple Pcs, with a linux distro.

I tried to install Manjaro yesterday but unfortunately the installer didn't even support my graphic card (blank screen). Then I tried to install Lubuntu 13.10 but I couldn't install the proprietay ATI driver needed for the switchable graphic card. I guess that I will stay with Lubuntu 12.04 for now... I also have a box running Win7 X64 because I use VC++ for Windows development. I also use XP X32 with VirtualBox on Lubuntu. My phone run Android.

I mainly use Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu, but I occasionally dip into OSX and CentOS. But it all depends on what needs to be accomplished.
Win 8.1 is still not good enough.



Windows 8 in general is so limited and not very user friendly.

NSA are not only ones who get early access to 0day. Majority of them are not sasser-like guaranteed accesses. Many are browser exploits or elevation of priviledge/UAC bypasses. Most of them require for attacker to already be in local network or the target machine be directly exposed to internet.

But the Windows Update is even more dangerous. It basically without user consent or control installs everything that is served by Microsoft. WGA was one of such disasters. And it was anticipated by reasonably suspicious people to come years before it actually hit the computers.

Linux is faster. I'm currently using Windows because I have some programs which do not run on Linux sadly. But, Linux is more secure and I normally use that for web browsing.

8 is better, it's just that 7 was so "groundbreakingly solid" helping restore faith in Microsoft after horrible Vista.
And a huge wave of FUD (almost like a paid job) concerning metro UI above everything sure did not help.
It was so annoying to see tons of comments from peopl who did not even try that thing out yet.

Window 7 forever..

Windows 7 is the best OS Microsoft has done in recent years in my opinion.

8 is better, it's just that 7 was so "groundbreakingly solid" helping restore faith in Microsoft after horrible Vista.
And a huge wave of FUD (almost like a paid job) concerning metro UI above everything sure did not help.
It was so annoying to see tons of comments from peopl who did not even try that thing out yet.


Im not paid, I dont like the store concept apple and android have integrated as well. Windows 8 is big fail in my opinion


lol ghave u tried win 8?!?!  It uses less resources than XP in my oppinion. Only thing i dont like is Metro but you can add a normal start button

Window 8 is faster but I can't find the start button Smiley

HINT: It's on your keyboard, right next to left ctrl. Wink

Even when u are very anal about your security, run on some heavily modded linux distro, watching text porn in terminal, at times you will probably need some shit done, let's say in adobe photoshop. Good luck with that on linux. So huzzah for simplicity and software availability. Or let's say you bought some cheap ass device with no drivers for it in linux. Countless possibilities.

I know of one, I wonder how many companies are upgrading to win7 rather than win 8? The one that I know who is going to 7, they are not doing because they don't like 8, but because the project started way before 8 was out and I guess they feel it would be too costly to change now.

I disagree

It is easier to debug what software isnt multi threading correctly with the win7 tm

people loved win 95, win 98, xp, and win 7.. what are u talking about? only 2000, vista and 8 have been hated. the problem is that microsoft is trying to force innovation, instead of looking at what people actually want and giving it to them. problem is, there really isn't that much more that the typical person wants from a PC o/s.

Title pretty much says it all. Which operating systems and versions/distros do you use?

I can answer this question for all forum users. As could be predicted, the most used here is Win7 x64.

Here's the OS part of the user agent for one day of web hits to this image, which is in some thread on this forum:

Windows NT 6.0 = Windows Vista or SBS 2008
Windows NT 6.1 = Windows 7
Windows NT 6.2 = Windows 8
Windows NT 6.3 = Windows 8.1
Macs in second place, with Linux, iPads and iPhones, and Android also a putting in a good showing.


Yes, I know who you are (see the quote in my signature); I actually can't disable logging on my webhost. If you don't like being tracked by third-parties everywhere you go on the web, you should install RequestPolicy.

Lets look in the past of Microsoft and Windows. As everyone notices eveery second windows is not accepted by ppl.

Win 95 not so god
Win 98  very nice windows, not so much difference in look
Win 2000  crap
Win XP i dont have to say anything
Win Vista crap pure crap
Win 7 dont have to say anything
and again
Win 8 and againd very large percent of PC users says it is crap, but i dont aggree

I'm actually writing from win 2000 now and I must say it was good for it's time. Quite stable, if you count out hive/registry overflow bug, which was never fixed and can kill your system regularly if you are unprepared. Also you forgot windows ME which was utter crap.

Windows 7 for now, its much much faster than Vista. But then security issues are with every version.
Windows 8 is such a waste, it looks like a Mobile OS running on a desktop, so useless.
