Regularly: Computer-wise, Windows XP and 7. Phone-wise, Android ICS and Symbian Anna (Belle sucked).

Occasionally: Vista and S60.

Haven't mucked around with Unix in ages, see no real reason to use Windows 8, and I neither own an Apple product or have any intention whatever to do so.

Add Linux Mint to the list, Quite nice so far.

I've added Win8 64bit to the list. I'm not convinced yet but we'll see how it works out

Re: How many Operating Systems do you use on a regular basis?

Yikes. Now I have to actually sit down and count.

Home: Windows Vista and 7, OS X 10.8, iOS 6
Work: Windows 7, Server 2003-2008 R2, SLES 10 & 11, ESXi 5, AIX 6.1, Brocade FabricOS, SVC 6.4.

So, lots. gturner, how old do you actually have to be in order to refer to AIX as RS/6000, considering those machines are at least a decade old (if not more.) It's all Power 6 and 7(+) here at my neck of the woods.

Zune's a form of Windows CE, so close enough.

Win XP, Vista and 7 at work on 3 different machines/networks. Win 7 and Mac OSX at home. Hard to keep it all straight sometimes...

Re: How many Operating Systems do you use on a regular basis?

I use Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, and some Apple OS at work, while at home I use XP and Vista. I use Windows 8 the slightest. I may also begin using Android, as my workplace has a kindle fire and we're training to know to use it.

Win XP and 7 at work, Vista and 8 at home plus iOS.

You know though if we allow Android and iOS you should probably allow for X-Box and PS3. I watch Netflix and Youtube on my PS3 as well as photos, video files, mp3s and more. The X-Box has HBO Go and while I haven't explored it yet I know it shows up on my PC's networked devices. Over the weekend, I paired up my iPhone with the PS3 youtube and was searching for videos on the phone and playing them with the PS3 on the TV. I think the future is just going to muddy the waters more with this stuff.

Re: How many Operating Systems do you use on a regular basis?

- Windows 7 & Server 2008 R2
- Debian and CentOS (prefer Debian for software development servers, but I have to maintain some inherited CentOS servers)
- Android 4.x (phone and several test devices)

The occasional software tests on iOS and checking up on the progress of Haiku OS don't really count.
