I develop on WindowsXP and serve on Linux. I did serve on a WindowsNT box once, and it worked quite well for the intranet it served.

I think this is the first time I\'ve seen the Mac at the top of
this kind of poll? I assume people are using Mac OSX.

MacOS X ist not Linux-based. It's based on FreeBSD built around a Mach kernel. And yes, it had it's share of problems in version 10.0.x, but since 10.1 it has proven to be rock-solid.

I have yet to see a decent installation of any Mac or MacOS in a shop (most of the sales people in computer shops are just clueless), so you shouldn't base your judgement on those experiences.

(Sorry, don't want to start in OS flamewar here ...)

bye, Dirk

It\'s been rock solid for me. The first release was slow but 10.1.2 has been great.

Haven\'t had a single hard drive problem using either IDE or SCSI (via 2940W card)

The only problems I\'ve ever had was when I put cheap ram in my G4 and the system
went flakey.

Can\'t hardly blame the OS for me being cheap ;-) Putting in PC133 instead of PC100 Ram
fixed the problem.

I love OS X (then again I\'m an old NeXTSTEP programmer, so I have a bias)

Don\'t assume it\'s cheating there are quite a few mac based GeekLog sites.

I\'m also a Mac OS X fan! :-)
