    Are you multi-booting your computer?

    * Note that the poll is set for multiple choices so you can choose all that have setup in your bootloader.

    No multi-boot for me.
    I dumped Windows 5 years ago.
    Using Ubuntu 10.04 but will be going with something else when it hits EOL.
    Don't care for Unity.

    I answered Windows (cuz of scooters),Other, and Linux only.

    Some of my Laptops are Windows and Linux=comfort zone.
    Some of my Laptops are Linux and Linux=fix pooched upgrade using puppy installeed on a small partition.
    My Desktops and EEPCs are Linux only and not dualboot, but I keep a puppy sd flashdrive for rescue purposes.

    I run in no particular order:
    Windows
    Oracle Solaris 11
    & Oracle Linux

    Oh and i also have spare disk space so i tend to try out other OS's when i find one that interests me. So its often a quad-boot system. ATM i'm trying BSD

    After being Linux only for a few years, I had to install Windows to run my game "Duke Nukem Forever". I'm not proud of it but I do not allow Internet access on the Windows partition unless I need to download something.

    Depending on the computer, I run Ubuntu 10.04 plus: lubuntu and ubuntu netbook, or lubuntu and antix, or lubuntu and easypeasy. I plan to switch one of my desktops to be ubuntu + debian + slackware.

    Only thing I got running is Linux.
    Slackware, to be specific.

    Slackware is Linux with designer stubble and a sixpack, if it had a job it'd be a lumberjack or a bomb-disposal expert. I run Fedora on my Eee. My "Desktop" (although it's in a full tower case, so I have somewhere to put my coffee) runs Windwos XP alongside my F16 - but only because there are certain games that I just cant do without

    Debian and Slackware for me but not on the same machine. I have just downloaded Crux to have a go on a lappy but it looks a tad scary!
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    And everything in between!

    I got lucky on that note. The only game I really had to have running is Diablo 2, and Wine does the job nicely.
