Hi all!

I have to take a survey for my Java programming class, so I decided to post the question here, so I would get more results, and faster.

The question is this:


Thanks for the help!

EDIT: added option for windows/mac, windows/linux, linux/mac

1. Windows
2. Mac OS X (or other Mac OS)
3. Linux
4. Windows / Mac
6. Linux / Mac
7. Other (Unix (other than Linux), BSD, etc.)

All but #5 in your original list.

Although my machine is dual boot, development is Linux only.

I'm the exact opposite: I only use Windows if I have to.

Because of school i have to use windows (sometimes) and because the printer drivers for my printer don't support wireless printing . Also, i play a few games, like KOTOR and KOTOR II, which don't like to work on linux with wine or PlayOnLinux. But i write Java for my class in Linux as much as i can, and i like to just explore and expand my knowledge of linux. I tried to use Linux From Scratch to make my own distro, but i failed at it, i didn't know enough about linux to do it right.But anyways, thank you all for your answers.
