    What is your favorite operating system?


    Please put below the name of your favorite operating system, your name (or JBoss forum user name), who you work for (its okay if you don't want to say):


    • For development:

    1. seratski, Debian, Eclipse 3.2 + WTP 1.5

    2. Klausson, OS X or Linux - with Eclipse 3.1 and MyEclipse

    3. Donovajf, OpenVMS if you want a REAL CLUSTERED operating system that is; admin/operator/user friendly, provides excellant HELP, realistic interactive commands and a great GUI interface for those who can't think!

    4. Andrew C. Oliver, JBossGroup - OS X, Eclipse as IDE

    5. Juha Lindfors, Microsoft Windows rules above all else. Easy and pleasant to use, maximizes your productivity by minimizing ineffective tinkering. There simply isn't an OS out there that comes even close to matching Windows.

    6. Little Alien OS X/Idea

    7. Nicholas WinXP/JBuilder

    8. Takomi_matsumura for development...yes i must agree...either OS X gui or Windows GUI...linux gui's require too much configuration to make user friendly...

    9. BOne  Mac OS X, Eclipse IDE .. I advise everyone to try Mac OSX. after that, u may have a new definition of user friendly

    10. AndersEngstrom I'd say linux (or some kind of unix with a good shell). grep, find and sed are your friends.

    11. Vladyslav Kosulin WinXP/Eclipse, Win2000/Eclipse
