    I noticed we have quite a mix of Mac and PC users here at DBSTalk so I thought I would start this informal survey. Please do not make this into a Mac vs. PC thread. Thanks.

    I'm a switchhitter. I use Macs primarily at work (but also work in multiple Windows and Linux environments) and Windows primarily at home.

    I have 7 pc's running windows O/S's

    I'm ashamed to say I have an Iphone but do willingly admit it is the best phone on the market.

    I have only ever had 2 machines run something other than a Window's O/S abeit a short time. I installed O/S2 Warp and removed it, and I had Ubuntu for a few weeks.

    Mainly use PCs that are running either Windows XP, Vista, 7, and Linux. Do not like Macs.

    At home I've got one Windows7 laptop, an Alienware PC gaming rig (Vista) and I just got a 13" Alum. MacBook after selling my launch MacMini. I hope to add a 24" iMac to the home this summer. So, I use both pretty equally.

    I know the % will be small, but would have been interesting to throw Linux up there as a another choice. I'm curious if it's making any inroads into the home or office. /steve

    "Once you go Mac, you never go back!"

    Got myself a good mix of Macintoshes here ... between my Power Mac G5, my wife's brand-new iMac 24", my PowerBook G4 15", her PowerBook G4 17", and lots of not-prime-time Macs (an old B&W G3, a G4 Cube, G4 "Digital Audio", another retired Power Mac G5) lots of Macintoshes here!

    Couldn't imagine using Windows, to be honest ...

    Made the switch from Windows to Mac October 07, so far terrific and I don't think I would go back.

    Use Both due to the work I do, but if I had my preference I would go Mac.

    I use Mac's at school. But I have a PC at home. But I rather use my school laptop than my PC.

    Ubuntu to be more specific. All my home PCs/Laptops are Linux (except for a single, old PC running Windows used for off-site backups since the software is only available for Windows). Wife and kids love it. Work laptop is Linux as well.

    Please add Linux to the choices. It's really a viable alternative nowadays.

    edit:
    Since we're talking nostalgia, I went from a Commodore 64, to a Commodore 128, to PC hardware, starting with a 286 (running DOS), then a 486 (running Windows), to Pentiums (running Windows), and now a hand-made (by me) quad-core beast (running Linux after trying and disliking Vista Ultimate 64 bit).
