I was bored, and decided to customise my Tablets' Interface a little bit
I only changed the colours for now, I'll change much more, when I want to.

I"m still using Windows XP, so far I have no plans to upgrade. All of the games I play on the computer (Sim City 4 & Hoyle Card Games/Board Games) work best for me on Windows XP. I'm also really good with this OS, I tried vista, worked good but games where to weak [as they are design for older OS].

So what operating systems do you use? - I still use Windows XP, hasn't let me down so far, don't like much the newer ones

Are you thinking of upgrading to a different one? - I don't plan to

And do any of you use a linux distro? - doesn't apply to me, I don't plan on getting any

Windows 7 baby. 7 is my favourite number and so far, this has been the best iteration of Windows since XP imo

Oh, I now just realised there were three questions in the TS, my bad.

So what operating systems do you use? - As I said before, I'm a user of almost every OS.
These OSs are the ones I've used in my life, not counting any Virtual Machines, Live CDs, nor Customer PCs.
Linux: Debian 1.1 all the way to Debian 7, Ubuntu 8.04 LTS to 12.10, CentOS 5.x and 6.x, Arch Linux, and Linux Mint 5 and 6.
Mac: Anything from 10.6 to 10.9.
Windows: WXP, WVista, W7, W8, W8.1.

Android: Anything since 2.1, only had Nexus Phones and ASUS Transformer Prime tf201.
iOS: 3.x and 4.x.
Windows Phone: 8.
Symbian: I don't remember, I had that Phone for 2 days only.

Are you thinking of upgrading to a different one? - Always when a new Version is available to the Public (or to Developers, if it's OS X), I get it right away, without any thinking.

In my opinion, Windows XP was the worst Desktop OS I worked with.
I mean:
1. Driver Installation was a pain in the arse, and it becomes only harder and harder.
2. Viruses easily enter Windows XP from every possible corner.
3. Weak Multi Tasking.
4. No .doc, .xls, nor .ptt support out-of-the-box.
5. Improper File Manager Navigation.
6. Limited Customisation without the need of any 3rd Party Tools.
7. No choice in Window Managers nor Desktop Environments; you're stuck with what Microsoft gives to you.
8. It's impossible to switch to a different language than the one you installed it in.
9. You can't control the entire OS by Command Line.
10. Weak Permission System; everyone is Admin, when exploited correctly.

And do any of you use a linux distro? - Yes, I used Linux for the first time in the (early) 90s, just after my father let me practice on his MS-DOS PC. Debian was the Distro I used first, and I was fascinated by the ability to use a Desktop, have a Mouse, have multiple stuff running at the same time, etc.

My desktop runs Windows 7 Home Premium. My laptop runs OSX uhh Snow Leopard? I have no idea what number that is. Might be 10.6. My phone runs Android 4.1.2. I've got a netbook around here somewhere with linux on it... I think it's an ubuntu distro but I don't even remember. I haven't seen it in a year or something.

The media PC we have hooked up to the TV runs Windows 8. I don't think it runs Pro but I only use it to watch Youtube or a torrented video on the big screen because I can't stand Windows 8, so I don't even remember the exact version.

My laptop runs Windows 8.1, my tablet runs Android 4.4 and my phone runs iOS 7.0.4. Windows 8.1 is okay, though when I installed it for the first time, it made some drivers start acting up and I had to reinstall a few of them.

It wouldn't surprise me if I have to upgrade in the near future though, as my computer's getting pretty old at this point. I'm also running iOS 6.1.3 on my iPod Touch, which is the final update available for it.
Well... two weeks and a dead computer later, and I've upgraded to Windows 8 (and a surprise iOS 6.1.4 update). Still don't know if I like 8 vs. 7 (or XP), but I guess I'll learn to live with it.

So what operating systems do you use? I use Windows 8.1 Pro at home and at work. I like it a lot and now dependent on some features only found in Windows 8/8.1.

Are you thinking of upgrading to a different one? Maybe when Microsoft releases a new OS. I am content at the moment.

And do any of you use a linux distro? My 5 year old laptop is running Ubuntu 13.10. It works great on that.
I really need a new signature.
