I choose other, mainly because I work with both Windows and Linux. I use Windows for my school related work, and its just easier/more compatible with more tools that I use, where Linux is still lacking. However, on my desktop, I strictly use ArchLinux, however; I have been debating whether or not to give a FreeBSD a shot. The likelihood of this change is very slim, mainly because FreeBSD is weak and has nothing on Linux distributions in terms of 'bleeding edge' packages, which I find very important.

Yeah, I have a couple computers, the smaller memory ones are older, and I just use them to test code, distributions, etc.
