Conversations Going beyond simple browser based OS marketshare numbers, everybody who feels like it can comment on the operating systems he has used and what operating system(s) he's using/considering now. Maybe also what marketshare trends you're seeing around you (work/university/friends/family) and what country you're from. No flamefest, please.

I'll go first:
Country: Germany
--GeoWorks Ensemble [~100MHz laptop]
--Windows95 [or maybe 98?, ~250MHz Desktop]
--WindowsXP [~500MHz Desktop]
--2003?--Suse 8.x WinXP dual boot [Athlon 3000+ Desktop]
--Linux distro-whoring, some desktop oriented BSDs, kept using WinXP
--PCLinuxOS, WindowsXP
--2006?--PCLinuxOS, (K)Ubuntu mainly [first time Linux only!]
--2008--Kubuntu [PCLinuxOS as a live CD]

Friends/Family: 90% XP, 5% Vista, 5% Linux
University [physics faculty]:
--students: 70% XP, 10% Vista, 10% Mac, 10% Linux
--profs: 50% XP, 10% Vista, 20% Linux, 20% Mac
