Until recently, I had on one machine (but with a 20GB & 80GB drive)
Win2K Adv Svr
Redhat Linux 7.3
Mandrake Linux 8.2
I also had Caldera Linux as well for a day or so but figured that was overkill. I blew away the whole set of drives and now just have Win2K Adv Svr with Domino/Notes 6.00 on it.
In the Past I had on one machine (A 486/50 I believe with 8MB ram???)
NT 4 (or was it 3.51?) SVR
NT 4 (or was it 3.51?) Wkstn

Technically Win 1, 2, and 3.x (as well as Windows for Workgroup) were not Operating Systems (more Operating Environments) as they were add-ons, and were not bootable OSes like DOS or Win9x or Warp were. Was that a real version of DOS or just the DOS window under Warp.

The final question for the panels was to come up with a list of 13 or 15 (I forget) linus distros not including the big names in industry.
So you could probaby get 20 - 30 linux distros on one box before you even started looking at Windows, DOS, etc.
