Geek Out: Name Your Operating System
« on: June 13, 2007, 08:02:31 PM »
Matty the Damned is an unashamed geek and consequently has a prurient interest in the operating system(s) that people use to run their computers. How fitting then that his first poll should be on this topic.

What operating systems do other forums members use to post flamebait and download porn?

For the record Matty the Damned uses Linux (Fedora 7 distribution).

OS X on two laptops, a desktop and a mini;

XP on 3 PC's at the office;

Linux on a box for Asterisk.

But, I couldnt vote more than one times, so as to my flamebaiting and porn, its OS X.

I couldn't vote for more than one, but I use XP, 2000, and Server 2003.  I have no bitches about any of 'em.  Hell, I finally rebooted one of my work pc's last week (my main PC) with XP.  I hadn't restarted it since Christmas.  I had Vista Enterprise on one, but it gave me headaches so I put XP back on that PC.

Matty the Damned considered multiple options for the poll, but decided to limit it to one. Just for the power rush. It's a Linux thing.

He figured there'd be multiple machine owners and dual booters out there but also figured they'd vote for their primary OS and post the details of the others in the thread. Which is what's happened.

I think I fail the geek test. I have no idea what OS my computer uses - windows something. Geez, I only bought my first toaster a few years back, and I can proudly say that my mobile does nothing more than make phone calls. I just turn them on and hope they work. They're just machines. Ask me about tress and rivers next time.

I'm no geek: a wonk, maybe but no geek.

I bought this computer retail last time I was flush with cash in 2003. It's a Sony Vaio tower that had all the latest bells and quite a few whistles when new. It's not quite antique yet, but it's getting there. It came with XP, which was lightyears ahead of the Windows 98 I had been using at the time, but now seems pretty simple.

Back in the day I used Linux...when I was a total dork.  Then I decided to start wearing nice clothes and stuff and stopped being so overly dorkie.  Along with that I got my iBook G4.  My iBook and I are both nerds on the inside, and pretty out the outside ;D  Perfect match.

I also got sick of working on computers outside of work.

OsX, What ever distro catches my eye this week, XP Pro, server 2003, Vista.  Beta testing for Parallels so I load a lot on that, Back in school for network security so we get asked to play with lots of distros and are encouraged to work with virtual machine. But I have up to 4 laptops and 3 desktops running at any given time.

I got my first mac (Macbook pro 17) since the IIe in March and love it.  It's become my primary when ever possible.  Though most network "enumeration and pen testing"  tools used in school are Linux based so I've been spending more and more time there.

OSX 10.4.9 on a MacBook, two ibooks, and an Imac.  I also have WinXP running as a dual boot on my Macbook and on a PC laptop (Sony somthing or other) that I play with from time to time.  Yes, we have 5 computers (four notebooks) for two people.  Typical American gross overconsumption.

I am a techno-geek ignoramus.  My travel bud just got a new puter with vista on it and it looks beautiful to me.  I'll be considering a new computer this coming year and would be happy with Vista.
I run Windows XP (or rather it runs for me).  On a totally nontechnical note I have always liked seeing the logo for that come up as I log on.  It reminds me of the famous page of the 9th century Irish Book of Kells page beginning with the two huge Greek letters Chi and Rho  X P - the first two letters of Christ's name in Greek.  It's as if the Window's designers wanted to harken back to the first flowering of post-Roman information technology, the illuminated manuscript.

My travel bud just got a new puter with vista on it and it looks beautiful to me.  I'll be considering a new computer this coming year and would be happy with Vista.

I wouldn't choose Vista.  In fact, several (many) websites don't / won't even support IE7, which is part of Vista.  I will say Vista is attractive, and I'll re-install it on one of my secondary systems at some point.  All that 'beauty' costs system resources, though.  If you set an XP system for 'performance' instead of 'appearance' and set other choices to 'Classic', you'll be surprise at how much faster the system runs than the normal XP settings or even Vista.  After all, who sits there and looks at a blank screen (Windows Desktop)?  When you're actually in an application, you won't see the fluff anyway.  Maybe after a couple of Service Packs come out Vista will be better, but for now, I'll just leave it for those who don't know any better!   ;)

I would not recommend anyone to "upgrade" an XP machine to vista.
On the other hand for new hardware Vista is great, I have no complaints, as stable as XP (the OS itself has never crashed on me). Aero is quite smooth on the eyes and has a much more polished look then XP (that is no surprise)  and even OSX (personal opinion).

On the other hand I updated my "old" laptop to OpenSuse 10.2 (Gnome of course. KDE still has that feel of a Windows wonna be *to me*). I am very impressed with this distro (and I've installed several over the years). It's clean, it looks professional, everything worked, no messing around. With 3D / Compiz enabled it does give Vista a run for the money in visuals, using less resources then XP to do so.
I had it dual booting with XP until yesterday... Now it's 100% OpenSuse 10.2 using Gnome. :)

Anyone: In short, why? What makes the difference? Upgrading any Microsoft OP.....compare to a unit with Vista already installed.
Heard mostly negatives on Vista upgrades so far.  Would it make a difference if one were to manually remove their exisiting OP before installing Vista?

I have to agree that visually Vista comes with a lot of "ooooos and ahhhhs" but takes up a lot of memory when doing an upgrade.  The upgrade creates a back up folder of the former windows.  Also, lots of issues with software/hardware compatibility with older items.

The new pcs that have Vista installed have had less issues from what I've heard.

Most PCs that were built for XP don't have the resources to run Vista well. Even my 2 year old laptop (now running OpenSuse 10.2, love it), that was quite top of the line when I got it, can't run Vista Aero.
If you do have hardware that can run vista well (at least 1G of memory and a video card that has access to at least 128mb of memory), I definitely would recommend doing a fresh install....
I have 2 PCs that came with Vista and I haven't had a single issue with the OS, I find it really solid and it does look amazing. Out of the box + OpenOffice you're set.
Of course don't forget to install Boinc and join the AidsMeds.com team!!!! Your PC can help with HIV/AIDS research... The drugs/treatments of tomorrow can start on your PC today :)   (PM me if you need more info).

Hey Mauricio!

My first Linux distro was SuSE 6.2 way back in 1999. I quite liked it, but soon moved onto Red Hat and Fedora. I acquired the Unix nature somewhere along the line and was never really comfortable with the way Windows (in any of it's forms) works.

As for the Macintosh OS, I admire that it now has Unix roots.

Of course don't forget to install Boinc and join the AidsMeds.com team!!!! Your PC can help with HIV/AIDS research... The drugs/treatments of tomorrow can start on your PC today

I'd love to be involved in this! Is there a Linux client available? I'll send you a PM about it. I'm currently involved in the Folding@Home project as part of the FedoraFolders team, but I don't think Folding@Home has anything to do with HIV. I'd like to devote some spare processor cycles to the search for a cure.

Hi Matty, there was a thread about it: http://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=12292.0

That reminds me I haven't reinstalled the client after reformatting the PC!  >:(
