    It's an IDE. Will that fix work if I'm running Ubuntu from a CD?

    And, yeah, Win7 absolutely does not recognize any Zip drives. There's some who claim theirs does, but never explain how.

    Windows Vista on my laptop (though i'll try out the 90 day Windows 8 test version in a separate partition soon)

    Android on my cell phone

    Don't feel the need to add anything else.. not a fan of Apple and have left my Unix days behind me

    Windows 8 on my PC, Server 2008R2 (courtesy technet subscription)/Linux (PABXiaf)/FreeBSD (pfsense) on my server sitting atop VMWare ESXi 5. iOS 4 something on my iPhone 3G, ICS on my Acer Iconia (everyone at my college got one), and Honeycomb on my HTC Jetstream (got dirt cheap as employee discount). Pissed that I can't upgrade either Android tablets further due to a lack of vendor support.

    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.

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

    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. ;)
