Now, for the rematch...

To make up for being late with last week's poll, here's a bonus. The idea was martin's. This rematch is basically because Vista had just been released at the time of the previous poll, and it could be interesting to see how things have changed since.

A couple of changes have been made to the original setup. First, all Linux distributions are now listed as one option. I have now also listed Unix and BSD in the list, as those were requested in the previous poll. You'll notice Solaris is now gone, since I found the option to be too specific to be listed separately (it now falls into the Unix category). In last place, there is a multiboot option, which was mentioned multiple times as well.

My Post

To be honest, nothing has changed since my last setup, except for one small detail: I'm about to buy Leopard, and will try to get it running alongside Windows (if all those patches to make it work on x86 actually work). If not, a friend of mine will buy it from me, since he has expressed interest as well.

Vista here. Though I'm planning to make an XP partition for games. I like Vista in every other way, but for games it really stinks. Technically, I have SLED dualbooted, but I haven't touched it since I installed it, so it doesn't count.
