What OS you using on your PC, MAC .. ?

Postby AtariZoll » Thu Mar 24, 2016 12:38 pm

This should help in having overview about what Atari people using as Internet, emulator running, etc. machine. OS is most interesting because working on SW what helps usage of, and data transfers with oldies. If you want, may specify HW too. In case of "Something other", pls. post about ..
Negative feedback has usually positive effect.

When Atari axed the computer division, my first Windows PC was a 486 DX/33 running Windows 3.1 for the low low price of $1500, ($2400 in today's dollars)

I remember trying to access the internet using a VAX Shell account at my local college and using twinsock to access the internet using Mosaic.

Win XP with WEPOS as general OS.
Some programs and hardware don't work on win10

Win 10 only for home-banking.

People got sense in not upgrading from XP ;) After talking to people about horrors of windows 10, I didnt like windows 8 anyway, I run win7 here. I only updated from XP as I was struggling to run more recent hardware.

Linux Mint ad FreeBSD over here, though I do want to get back into Haiku and Aros.
Atarian since 1989. Atari 1040STFM, 4MB 520STe with UltraSatan and Unitor N, A dodgy 1 MBSTe that bombs out after a few minutes, and a 14MB 48MHz Falcon 030 with NetUSBee and Soundpool 8 channel DAC. Plus my new MiST!

Haiku rocks :) it works quite well and is very neat. I'm sure I'll use it more in the future...
Otherwise, I'm using Linux as my main OS.

I use W10 as main OS (I had W7) but it has also installed Ubuntu and MAC OS X but only for knowledge and for doing concrete things. So...I voted W10.

- Vista,
- Seven,
- Windows 8,
- Windows 8.1,
- Windows 10,
- Server 2003,
- Server 2008,
- Server 2012...

Next step, downgrading Windows 10 to Seven/8.1 max. : from now, will use Virtual Machines & next step : Linux !

What I think about Win 10 : too much to talk about & only in negative :roll: ...

Windows 7 x64 on my laptop and desktop.
I also use Windows 95/MS-DOS on a legacy machine because I find there's more software available for things like floppy disk handling, terminal, laplink, etc. and the machine has more ports.

"Modern" computer, ha! But it does run 10 fairly well, once you boot off the bloat of course. As I can't tick enough boxes (massive oversight on a tech enthusiasts' forum MUG!) I'll also mention I brought an XP install on another drive last used around six years ago back to life and stuck Zorin on a partition, to get GRUB on there more than anything to be honest. That was a bitch I can tell you when the manufacturer has taken up all 4 primary partitions with their recovery junk!

Oh and not forgetting of course that I'm typing this on a trusty LG Chromebase. Wonderful machine, and served me well while the other "modern" computer was being repaired over many months of procrastination. You can't play FTL on that though!

tldr: 10, XP (x2 actually, one with WindowBlinds, other is GOLD 2K16- awesome 8), both WEI/WEPOS), Zorin (with Unity, OpenBox + other stuff to muck around with, nice looking GRUB), ChromeOS. Oh and I love Windows 8 if there's one going. :angel:

At home for web etc: mid 2013 13" MacBook Air (maxxed out) on El Capitan. Absolutely love Apple laptops.
At work: mid 2015 15" MacBook Pro.
For video editing and photo work: Windows 10 on maxxed out Intel Skull Canyon NUC + Nvidia 980Ti in Razer Core thunderbolt 3 enclosure.
Home NAS / rendering server is a home built 8 core i7 5960x overclocked to 4.5GHz, RAID card with 7200rpm NAS drives, OS on RAIDed SSD's etc. Running Windows 10 due to needing to use Adobe Media Encoder, otherwise would be Linux.
Backup NAS is a Synology NAS, old DS412+ model.

That's the bulk of my stuff.

And now I'm starting a retro collection that I intend to actually use day to day for real work...
