Any brand uses it--you can install it on a Mac or HP or Asus or whatever.

I have Windows XP on my computer which also has Linux(but I haven't used it). I used a Mac for a couple days last week, so now I'm kinda considering saving up money for a MacBook, since my computer is probably around ten years old now and can hardly do anything anymore. XD

Windows 7 (starter).

I really can't imagine ever dealing with Windows' weird permissions ever again, viruses or missing DLLs. I use Fedora.

Hmm lets see. I have Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Windows 7, Ubuntu, and Jolicloud installed on my Macbook. Can't decided which I use more though.

That thing must have a pretty good-sized hard drive.

Most machines out there have at least 320 GB hard drives nowadays. It doesn't take much space to store a single OS, and assuming you have one shared partition for most of your data, keeping 4 OSs can easily be done with 320 GB.

I'm more aghast at what it takes to quad-boot a Mac (I'm assuming you use a Mac, since you have Snow Leopard). Those don't natively support multi-boot

(you can have OS X and Windows using Boot Camp, but Apple likes to pretend that there are only 2 OSs so they don't support any more) so you'd have to fiddle with the bootloader to get it to work.

I use GNU/Linux (Trisquel to be specific) at home, another distro (Ubuntu) at work, and Windows and OS X sometimes at work too.

My Windows 7 partition won't start up for some weird reason, which kinda sucks when I want to test something on it. But I don't like using Windows for most things anyway

I have Vista, because that's what my laptop came with.

My poor, innocent desktop came with Vista too. I had to enlighten it. ;)

I use Ubuntu. I'd love to try out 7 sometime, though. I hear it's pretty good.

7 is a better version of Vista, with a nicer looking Paint and a nicer taskbar. It also performs relatively better than Vista. Though I wouldn't expect it to perform any better than your current OS.

I've never used any other OS than Windows. xD

It's a 100 times more faster than Vista, from what I remember. :P

I've heard it's much faster. Vista was crap, which is why I use Linux now--it's also about 100 times faster ;)

A gazillion-year-old Mac. :P
