Q1: I'm using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation 4.4 here at work. It's not that bad, but I'd rather be using Debian stable. RH can put out some really hairy updates.

Q2: I'm using Gnome. It's not that I particularly prefer it over anything else, but 90% of the apps I use are GTK based, and it's the default on RHEL. It's nice though, and it doesn't get in the way.

Q3: Opera is my browser of choice on Linux. (When I have to use Windows, I'll use Firefox, and on Mac OS X at home I'll use Safari or Camino, depending on how I'm feeling)

Q4: I use Thunderbird on my desktop here at work. (At home I use Mail.app on Mac OS X.)

Q5: A Windows box and a KVM switch! ;)
