What is your favourite operating system - mine personaly is Windows (either XP or Vista) XP for functionality and Vista because it looks good (weak argument) Still, I want to know your verdict! :mrgreen:

Well if we are to ignore all those "oh no duplicate thread!" warnings, then:

My favorite OS is definitely Linux - that is, some distro's anyway.

But I use Windows (XP of course!) more. There are more games for windows and there is Visual Studio for windows (and not for linux afaik) and those 2 things are taking up most of my time.

why not a "worst OS" for a change? TI-OS (z80 and m68k, for their calculators with those processors: 83/84 series(z80) and 89 series (m68k)) is just aweful, it contains more serious bugs than Windows (windows probably contains more, but you'll never see them)

And the z80 version only uses about 32KB of the 128KB ram that is present on the (TI 84+) hardware (ok the USB routines use a buffer in a part of the "unused" ram, and some 3rd party programs use some of the additional ram).

I would say this is pretty biased given you are posting this in the forum of a Windows image editor.

Not necessarily. I know a lot of people who use Windows because it's the best for what they want to do but absolutelly hate it.

Except that very few people run multiple OSes and so lack experience with more than one.

Personally, yes I would agree with you. Although many people are in the situation where they run one OS at home and their work/school runs another. I know the middleschool I used to go to ran Mac OS X.

Can't you get PDN for linux?

I think you can run windows applications under linux in some application called "wine" or something like that

From what I have heard, Microsoft puts in safeguards to prevent its software from running of Wine. Paint.NET needs the .NET framework to run which is written by Microsoft.

There's an incomplete port of Paint.NET for Linux called Paint.mono.

3. Windows XP

Mac OS X by a long shot, XP isn't close to Mac OS X, but it's still my 3rd favorite.

I don't know if this "Miguel" character has made any progress in the port yet...

...With Mac, I think the best option is to use Boot Camp. :-)

Does .NET work on wine?

Tis the purpose of Wine is to allow .NET applications to run on Linux or Mac.

I thought the purpose of Wine was to run Win32 apps on Linux. I think you are thinking of Mono.
