Day 09 of 30 (in 30 days of Geek) – What OS/distribution do you run?

Day 8 of 30 (in 30 days of Geek)…

What OS/distribution do I run?

At work, I do about 60/40 between Linux (Ubuntu 10.10) and Windows (XP pro)

With windows I do:

  • MS Word, Excel and Visio for company stuff
  • Outlook for email
  • Build windows installers and test software on windows

With linux, I do

  • Writing software (mostly java, some C++)
  • Testing software for linux
  • Writing python code for automating tasks
  • debugging / logging of tests and serial IO

At home I use Windows 7 (for games and email), Mac OSX (for media and iOS development) and Linux whenever I get bored 🙂
