Well, I'm already using 9.04 server on my home server. I really like the update process..
"do-release-upgrade -d" and you are done...
I will wait a few days before upgrading, though...

  • win95
  • win98 + SE
  • win2k
  • winME
  • win XP (still using it and in my eyes the best OS of MS ever made so far)
  • Win Vista (briefly but didn't like it so back to XP :D )
  • win 7 (laying around to be installed on my quad core)
  • linux Ubuntu distro (had some problems with drivers etc and I couldn't be bothered any more)
Might be some more but I think most of them won't know about them like an early pre dos BBC "computer"

Several dutch translations for 3.1 extensions if you need one or there is an update of an extension feel free to notify me.

In order of use...
  • Windows ME
  • Windows XP
  • Windows 98 (Yes, I had to DOWNGRADE at some point in time)
  • Windows Vista
  • Ubuntu
  • Windows 7 (Current)
I doubt I'll change from Windows 7 now, but I could see myself using Ubuntu again in the future on a laptop or similar.

Unkown:
1st one was a small keyboard that plugged into the television - around 1984. The HD was actually a cassette tape deck. Don't ask what it was called, I do not remember. con - what's an internet :lol:

Win:
3.1 (I think) pro - it was a computer//con - took all day just to load a modem
95/98 pro - again it was a computer, photoshop was a plus and affordable // con - same thing, loading hardware was a full time job
2000 Pro, pro - built it myself, worked fantastic for creating 3d animation // con - wasn't very good running too many programs at once
XP Pro, pro - nice if you turned off all the extras // con - too bad it would turn some of them back on by itself, how much space does a system really need; and, we do have minds of our own

Mac:
9.1 pro - nothing to do with the OS, but nice monitor; also, it worked great as a door stop. con - useless
OSX 10.4 pro - everything // con - if I ever find anything I don't like, I'll let you know... ooops, got it - that darn gong of a sound at boot-up (you can add that to the 9.1 also -- wake up apple)

Red Hat:
Toyed with it for an hour - forget it.

I like the OSX start-up sound, personally. I also like the earlier Error sounds. Look them up on youtube. It would have added a little humour into an annoying situation.

Windows: All of them from around Windows 95.

Linux: CentOS (albeit remotely) and Ubuntu

So not a major list just yet. My next desktop may well be a Mac.

Atari OS (Atari 800)
Atari TOS (Atari ST; GEM ripoff or clone, don't remember)
TRS-80 Model 100
Mac OS 7,8,9
MSDOS multiple
Windows 3.1 - 7, all

I don't remember the name of the OS the Model 100 used. It was a ROM-resident Microsoft product. That little computer is the one I had the most fun with, second would be the Atari 800.

Win XP has been the workhorse; fun, no. But it gets stuff done, I suppose.

I have a Mac on order, so Mac OS 10 could go on the list soon. I'm hoping it's even better at getting stuff done, and being fun to use to boot.

Next to learn: Linux, here I come!! That's for some development I want to do.
