I Partition

I actually partition my disks. I think it's not too painful (or painful at all) when you get used to the system. It's fast and it keeps everything pretty spread out which is kind of nice when you're dealing with something like OSes. I find it practical, but kind of odd unless you can really justify it (like you need to use Windows but want Linux or vice versa). I'm kind of surprised how many people use virtulization, though. ~25%+ seems to be the result thus far in the poll.

For me as of now, though, I've only got one real OS running: GNU/Linux (Arch Linux, in particular) which I'm happy with.

Have you actually asked your hard drives about it? ;)

Good point, good point. Well I think it's happy, personally.
