    lol just curious
    my vote = 5
    1 bsd, fedora, slackware, mentoo, devian
    i use fedora most tho (the other four only have 15 gig partions)
    man i wish macintosh worked on all computers, but then again the only reason apples can keep up is because all the parts a specialised to work together, sorta like a gaming console.

    I only have 2, however I will soon be putting FC 3 and I eventually want to have a LARGE selection. Would be fun I think...

    Re: home many distros/OSs do u have on your comp

    At one point I had 5: FreeBSD, Debian GNU/Linux, Debian GNU/HURD, OpenDarwin, and lakerdonald's JediLinux. JediLinux is now on my laptop, and I've decided to stop testing GNU/HURD and OpenDarwin for the moment. So right now, I just have 1: FreeBSD ; mainly because I hate rebooting, and having a multi-boot system sorta requires that....

    I have 3 at the moment, and I think while the number will stay the same, the distros won't as I am still playing around.

    Right now I have 3, xp pro, FC2, and Slackware10.1, but as soon as I get comfortable playing with slack I'll probably try installing something a little more challenging.
