Linux is being a pain in my posterior to install.

But at least I now know what architecture this computer is now. i386. Must remember that.

On my laptop:
Ubuntu
Vista
XP
Mac OS X86 (woohoo, hacks)
and I'm hoping to get a variant of BeOS running.
Why?
To show I can.

Windows XP. My computer broke, so I'm gonna be getting Vista soon. Wonder how it'll be (I've heard it sucks, but never really heard why)

People say it sucks because it takes up so much space and needs a lot of RAM to make it not be really slow.

It's good apart from that. I find it ok, but I don't use it for gaming or anything.

all new computers come with at least 2 gigs of ram installed. Thats all I have, and Vista runs as fast as ever. Of course, I'm gonna go out and buy four 2gig ram sticks so my Steam games don't lock up when loading.

None the less, Vista is great. Just don't install it on a computer you bought in 2003.

I've got Windows XP for tablets on my lappy (which I like better than regular XP for some reason) and Mac OS X not the most recent as the home desktop. I'm also eying a macbook for when I graduate.

I use Windows Vista with 1 gig of built-in RAM, and it seems to run just fine. Recently, I decided to take advantage of the ReadyBoost feature to add around another gig of RAM to my laptop. It doesn't really seem to do anything though, so I'm wondering if it's working.

I agree. And I also use a Mac. It's the only operating system my father will let into the house.

Both desktop and lappy are dual boot with XP and Kubuntu Linux. Desktop was just Kubuntu for the longest time, but then I actually got back into computer games... installed XP just to see how much better they would run, and they ran much better (on the operating system they were designed for?!?! Who would've known!?!), so now I hardly use Linux anymore.

Well, my lappy came with 512 meg of RAM, and I only bought it a month ago. It also came with Vista, which it really struggled to run.

It now has 1.5 gig and it's fine.

EDIT: But I did get it straight from the manufacturer, if a shop sold it it would probably come with much more RAM.

Vista. I don't see why people hate it so much. Sure, sometimes it SNAFUs, but not as much as XP used to, for me. I've only seen one or two BSoDs so far, and I've had the thing for nine months.

I have Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Fedora Core Linux boxes at home, and I'm using a Mac here at work (and hopefully getting a MacBook soon, which I might try to dual-boot with Linux). Actually, depending on the cost, I might try and get all three OS's on one computer, mostly for the reason Kupo said.

I use Vista, thanks to the NEW LAPTOP I have. UAC is the worst thing about it: I really don't care for having my system babysit me.

Most likely due to every idiot and their mom getting a computer nowadays has something to do with that.

You know that it's possible to disable that, right? I hated it, too.

How do you disable it? I'm sick of it too.
