Well, which OS do you use? If you're going to switch to XP in the near future, vote for XP.

This may surprise you, but I included the fifth option for precely that reason.


Also, if someone has more than one OS -- vote for the one you usually play Doom on =)

I use Windows 2000 and Windows XP at home. My mom uses a Windows 98 machine, and I use a Windows 98 machine at work.

I also have an internet-sharing computer that runs on Linux.

WHICH ONE DO I FUCKING PICK

I dual-boot Win2k and Suse Linux on this box. Unfortunately, I'm really not in any shape to use Linux yet (since, as I've stated before, any and all documentation I've found on it reads like a Richard Simmons' diet book translated into Korean), so I mostly just stick to 2k. I like it.

Not really a kid. Not really an airbag. WHAT THE HELL IS IT?!? Who's asking? Are you French? An airbag is a safety device in a car that inflates during a collision and blocks you from smashing your head into the dashboard or steering wheel!

I use the MacOS (duh). Since years. Nobody will devide us - me and the apple. We are in love ^_^

Plus - on the top of the MacOS - a PC emulation with PC-Dos 7.0 and Windowz 3.11. For some ports and etitors I have a P133 (which runs W95 and is not that bad). Some things cannot be run in emulations. Maybe I will buy this machine a 200MHZ cpu for $10.00 :).
I also love my NeXT Cube, running NeXT Step. Yup.

The best arcade game in the world. 5 episodes, loads of different weapons (ranging from banana shots,hotdog shots, to pulse cannons and vulcan machine guns), loads of cool features and secret levels 'n' stuff. I consider it the Doom of arcade scroller flying games

The carrot is *******ely my favorite ship. Back when I only had the demo I managed to get all the codes for the different ships. I haven't had a chance to see if there were any more after that in the registered version, but I hope their are. Their are only two games in that genre that I would like to see remade in 3D: Tyrian and Abadox.

I just got some ship that has even more armor than the banana ship. It's called The Stalker 21.256 (prolly not the exact number). I have Zica Laser for front gun and Zica Chargers for left and right side kick. Zica lasers rule. If you want, i could post some pics of my equipment

WinXP is essentially Win2k with worlds of spyware built right into the OS. Just one more proof that Microsoft is looking out for us. Or looking into us. Ahhh hell, I can't remember which is which anymore...

More stupid fucking FUD.

There's not a single company out there that's got equipment built to track the computer usage habits of even one hundred million people, Microsoft included. In fact, XP has more privacy features than before: IE6 is installed by default, with cookie protection features. Granted you can get the same by just installing IE6 on any other Windows machine ...

The only time at which a machine with Windows XP will send information about itself to Microsoft is during the activation process, and that in itself is simply only encoded information about certain pieces of your system hardware, not personal information, and if you feel paranoid enough, just call up Microsoft with the authentification number through a fucking pay phone and they'll still give you an activation number.
