Just curious what operating systems people out there have used/installed over there years (or months/weeks/days!?) of computing, and which they thought was the best?

Mine are (in no order) :

Win 3.11
Win 95
Win 95b
Win 98
Win 98 SE
Win M.E. (YECK! die!)
Win NT 4
Win 2000 Pro
Win XP Pro (currently installed)
RedHat 7.0
RedHat 7.3
Mandrake 8.0
Mandrake 8.1 Beta
Mandrake 8.1
Mandrake 8.2
Gentoo Linux
NetBSD
Slackware Linux 8.1
FreeBSD

I'm sure there's more, just can't remember right now, Some operating systems i've never owned and would like to try are Windows 1/1.01 and Windows Memphis (Win97)
My personal fav has to be Slackware, but for functionality, windows wins hands down, so XP has to be the best o/s ive used.

I've never ran an apple o/s, the first family PC was almost an apple but we opted for a 100mhz 8mb 486 instead :p

I've used apple o/s before, just never had one installed (it would prove quite a challenge on a PC for a start :p ) but i have vowed that my next box will be some form of mac!

i think redhats just a name that people atuomatically assocciate with linux, which is either good marketing on RedHat's behalf, or bad marketing on other ditro's behalf (altho other's dont "market" there distro as such)
