Same here. Our outside-connectivity servers are all running on Linux, workstations all on 2000 or XP.
Win 98 & OSX at work
Win XP & OSX Laptop at home
I Like woking at home ;)
Win2k at work.
WinXP at home.
I find Linux is by far the best tool to get things done - a simple window manager, a text editor, email client and browser, and I'm all set. I work from home, and I run a (heavily personalized) Mandrake 9.1 installation with XFCE 4.0.6 as window manager. Windows? I would never go back.
WinXPPRo SP1 desktop, WinXPHome SP2 laptop. I don't work outside....
Will be shortly "reframing" my desktop to separate drives for XP, SUSE9.2 (at first, but may change depending), and data. After that, I'll be changing an old IBM ThinkPad (running Win98SE) over to some flavor of linux (yet to be determined), and then I'll move my new laptop to whatever works best in linux.
I'm about done with Windows.
Then they put this W2K Pro on top of that, which makes for a friendlier interface and adds some functionality. Thanks Jef.
XP Media Center for a workstation
RedHat 9 for a home file server

Windows 2000 while slowly learning Suse Linux 9.0, but I must admit being tempted by Mac Mini.
I use 2000pro on all machines. Don't know why, I just sort of like it. Better the devil you know and all that.
Home: Windows 2000--Laptop
Work: OS X, WinXP Pro & Linux. (Yes I DO have 4 PC's at my desk.. although one of the X machines and the Linux machine are servers.)
PrePress Rocks! all the fun toys...
Windows 2000 on one box, debian based Linux on 2. Currently on Linux. Using w3m browser as an experiment, nothing like not seeing any graphics, :-)
240 V :)
Who makes the 240 V?
Maybe he means electricity....
Same for me
Windows XP SP2
My computer runs on electricity too! What a coincidence. :-) I've got the 120 model though.

Really? Mine is powered by the latent energy held within rabbit droppings. The methane powers a windmill. Very ecological.
Only problem is that the office smells like ...
Don't act special. That's just a fancy way of getting electricity, and you know it. ;)

Great ... thought I was the only one ... except I utilise a methane fuel cell for direct conversion to eliminate odour and increase efficiency.
Backup energy provided by septic tank connection (we were missing a toilet reference in this thread ...).

I am so special. My mommy told me so :-)
My internet machine is a PII 350 on win 98se. It is totally, completely, and absolutely separate from my production machines which are running on win2000pro and Debian GNU/Linux networks and live in complete isolation and ignorance of the outside world.
Workstations: Ubuntu Linux (Warty)
Servers: Debian Linux (Woody)
Mac OS X (Jaguar) and OS 9.22 on other partition.
- XP SP2
- Win 98SE (don't bother reminding me - I know it sucks)
- Knoppix (Linux), installed as the native OS - Just because I was advised not to do it, and that it would create a "dangerously unstable" Linux envirenoment if I tried to run it as anything but a Live CD. It's, bar none, the most stable computer I have.
- Ubuntu Linux (Warty Warthog). I think someone else mentioned this distro. It's completely failed to impress me, on any number of fronts. Serious lack of hardware drivers, limited number of bundled aps (where's my Lynx, dangit? ). Ummm... I'll give them another release or two to get their act together, then give up on it.
Mandrake linux on both desktop and servers. Been on Linux on my servers since forever. Went on the desktop a year or two ago. I'm reasonably technical (but not hardcore) and you couldn't pry me from linux on my desktop now.
Windows isn't as popular as I thought is was.
Thanks for the replies.
Feel free to post more replies!
Windows XP(SP2) for my workstations (two of them), Windows 2000 on a laptop, then RedHat Linux on all (what, nine or so) servers except one, which runs Win2k Advanced Server.
