I can't access the poll from Tapatalk, but we have one Windows XP netbook and several Ubantu machines.

Honestly, I mostly use my Android phone and tablet for being online.

Sorry for the double post, I can't edit.

I get more and more tempted to switch my netbook to Linux, but I need a few windows programs.

My husband has been the one experimenting with Linux, and none of his projects have gone well. If I do it, I plan on being more careful.

Vista is great until it isnt, like the Mac OSX. They work and then they dont, that is my experience YMMV.

7 a is far more solid of an OS this early into its life cycle then Vista was at the same point.

Working for an ISP, I am not looking forward to Windows 8 being released later this month. And I have worked with W8.
winsxs was the folder. I only had the OS on my C drive and it ate up the entire drive.

what do you mean what program is it tied to? Do you mean what program did I use to try to move it? I can't remember that lol

My Vista has worked for me now for 5-6 years, something like that. So I'm pleased with it.

I dual boot Windows 7 and linux - though I usually use windows, because my school programs won't run on linux.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

I use Mac Mountain Lion. I need a mac for my university, I also have a PC with Windows Vista but I hate Windows, like I really hate it... I only use my PC when I need to use Sony Vegas Pro.

I use a Windows 7 laptop. We have like... 5 computers in our house though. One is a Mac that is quite old now, and I have no idea what the others are, some form of Windows though
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.
