Currently using Windows 8 on my gaming rig. Mac OS X on my mac and iOS 5.11 (or sumthin') on my old iPod Touch and Android Jelly Bean or Ice Cream Sandwich on my tablet.

Used to use Ubuntu too, but that sh*t messed up my old rig. Installing drivers on any Linux distro is a bit of a task to say the least...

Oh but without a doubt Windows 8 (yes E-I-G-H-T) is my favourite of all time. My opinion.

Android on my smart phone, Windows 7 on the family computer and Ubuntu 12.04 on my brother's laptop. He somehow managed to delete Windows lol but it was Windows 8 so no one cared. xD

I'm currently on Windows 7 (fuck you Windows 8), and for my tablet I'm on Android Jellybean.

I have used Ubuntu but I didn't like it enough to keep it around.

Using Windows 7.

I'd use a Linux distro but the lack of support sucks.

Windows Vista and iOS.

Currently I have windows 8.1 (the only thing keeping attached to this excuse of an OS is my games), OSX, Kubuntu, iOS (phone), and android (tablet). I've also tried pc-bsd, freebsd, ubuntu, xubuntu, arch... basically Im stuck in a phase where i cant find the right *nix OS for me but Kubuntu seems to be the best so far.

I've used everything buy Unix, though the only Linux I've ever used is Ubuntu, so not sure if that really counts. Windows 8 (with Star8) is what I use mainly though

Currently on windows 7.

And not including computers we haven't owned, I've also used DOS Shell, win 3.11, 95, 98, and XP.

I've used Windows every version of Windows from 98 until now, OS X on Mac and on the Linux side I've used OpenSuse, Mint and Ubuntu. My daily driver is Ubuntu though, cannot stand Windows.

On the phone side I've used both iOS and Android, with my preference being 100% on Android.
