Default Linux, Solaris (various versions)

I've been meaning to investigate DragonflyBSD. HAMMER looks interesting; I'm curious how it'll compare to BTRFS.

On my main rig, Vista Home Premium x64. On my P4, Ubuntu; on the living room system, XP Pro; and on my sister's laptop, Vista Home Premium x86 (came like that).

System 1: Phenom II 720 BE | GA-MA790GP-DS4H | HD6870 | Audigy2 ZS Platinum | 2*2GB G.Skill PC2 8500 | 2*1GB Corsair PC2 6400 | 750GB Caviar Black | Lian-Li Rocketfish | VX550W
System 2: Brisbane X2 3600+ | TA790GX 128M | 6600GT | 2*1GB G.Skill PC2 6400 | 250GB Deskstar | Antec Super Lanboy | Antec TP3-550
Portable Thingie: Compaq CQ60-420US. Eh, it gets the job done.

That is a good question. I was once in the same situation as you were. I did a lot of research. Lot of vendors offer linux and since its open source you can download it for free. I highly recommend UBUNTU 8.10 which is the latest version. UBUNTU has very good features and is good for beginners if you are migrating from windows. You dont have to learn anything to start using it. Gradually when you get used to u can use the command mode to learn.
