How many lives have you been through?
Well ... actually, what I meant was: How many operating systems have you used and lived with so far Tongue

Just decided to extend our "mod's discussion" that was going on in the shoutbox. Include a list of all the OSes and versions which you remember, mobile devices and server versions are allowed.

MS-DOS
IBM-DOS (yes, they were different OSes back then)
Windows 3.11
IBM OS/2 (I wonder how many remember or even got to try)
Palm OS
Windows 95, 98SE, 2000, XP, 7
Windows Advanced Server 2000, 2003
Windows Mobile 6.1
Ubuntu & Kdubuntu Linux
Symbian^3
Android Froyo, Gingerbread


You can tell the young pups from the old "pack leaders" Tongue by how short the list is as well as how much of it is Windows based.

RE: How many lives have you been through?
MS-DOS*
Window 3.1 *
Window 95 *
Window 98
Window XP
Window 7
Android GingerBread

*Was too young to work things around, so was just being passive back then

PS. Seeing that MS had been under the spotlight for many years, it's quite logical.

Lurking, and pretty much so.

RE: How many lives have you been through?
I'm kinda surprised by how short some of the lists have been so far, so I thought I'd chime in (either to remind folks of some oldies or to blow your mind with just how many computers I've touched in my relatively short life):

Apple II DOS / Applesoft BASIC (on an Apple ][+)
PC-DOS (on an XT)
MS-DOS 6.22 (on an XT)
Windows 2.11/3.1 (on a Wearnes 286)
Windows 95/98 (on a 486DX)
Windows NT 4 (on school computers)
SGI IRIX 5.? (on school computers... SGI O2s)
Red Hat Linux 5.1 (on a HP Pavilion Pentium II)
Windows 2000/XP (on a HP Pavilion Pentium II)
Palm OS 3.5.1 (on a Palm m105)
Palm OS 4 (on a Sony Clie T615 Orange)
Palm OS 5 (on a Sony Clie UX-50)
SuSe Linux 9.1 (on a Fujitsu laptop)
Ubuntu 5.10 (on a short-lived Dell laptop)
Mac OS X Panther/Tiger (on iBook G4, Mac mini G4, MacBook Pro CD)
Mac OS X Leopard/Snow Leopard/Lion (on MacBook Pro CD, MacBook C2D, MacBook Pro i7, MacBook Air C2D)
Windows Server 2003 (on HP servers in Cornell)
Windows Vista/7 (on HP Pentium 4-M, Gateway Pentium M, HP TouchSmart i3, Acer Core 2 Quad)
iOS 2/3/4/5 (on iPhone 3G, 4, iPad 1, 2)
Android Donut/Eclair/Froyo/Gingerbread (on HTC Magic, Nexus One, Nexus S)
Windows Phone 7/7.5 (on Samsung Omnia 7)

(Surprisingly for a computer geek, I've only used Linux as my main OS twice in my life. Once when I was an adventurous kid in secondary school, and a second time when I was in university. Over time, however, I would always get sick of the fact that something or another refused to work and revert back to something more orthodox.)

In hindsight, I should really try to keep my computer purchases in check.

Uh.
My dad taught me how to use MS-DOS to start up Wolfenstein 3D when I was in kindergarten. xD

C:\Game\Wolf3d.exe, Insert floppy disk. xD
