Your OS personality type

Which OS are you? I am Slackware Linux. This would make sense, if not for the fact that I use Win2K.

I'm apparently OS/2, which actually I used to use, back in the days.

Which OS are You?

I am Windows XP. This would make sense, if not for the fact that I use Slackware.

I think I shall drown myself now.

Amiga.

It'd be nice to see what answers give you each result listed. I love the result for FreeBSD(the OS of choice that I proselytize), "You're a speed demon and a great networker. You have a tendency to give it away for free. Well-respected, but virtually unknown."

I am GNU/HURD. (What the hell is that?)

I'm Palm OS, despite my loathing for all things Palm.

I don't know about this. . . I never liked the old Apple computers, and I don't like the new ones, still it's probably better than Windows ME.

As an anti-Windows person, I'm going to be sobbing quietly into my pillow for the rest of the day.

I'm OS X, and I feel fine.

Slackware Linux.

At least they got the first syllable right.

Palm OS - steady and straightforward - my mother would like me to do more with my life, like my cousin Wince, but I'm ok with who I am. :D

Hmm... smart little quiz, it is. Right on with the whole new-found stability bit.

OS X... not a chance. AIX maybe. \me throws another apple on the fire.

I would have preferred something like OS X, but I'm ok with this. I am.

I did this a while back and came up slackware linux too.
I was pleased. Not because the description was accurate (though it was), but because I'm starting to look like JR "Bob" Dobbs.

Dependable. Well, that's just ducky. Where's a vampire Doppelganger when you need one?

I am slackware linux. That's nice. It has so much higher geek cachet than W2K and XP, which are the two OSes I actually use. Not that I like them particularly, but they are what I use. Ever few weeks I think to myself, gotta set up a linux box and remind yourself that you know how to use real OSes, but then I don't.

Seems pretty appropiate. I'm one of those people who would be happy to spend two hours figuring out a one hour solution to a problem that would normally take two hours to do.

I actually use Win98, but that's not so much a matter of preference as it is:

A. What I have.
B. What runs the programs I want to run.

Debian Linux
People have difficulty getting to know you. Once you finally open your shell they are apt to love you.

I took this awhile back, and felt at the time this was more nuanced than your average online personality test. It is kind of fun.

I came up FreeBSD, I have no idea where that came from...

Long live OS X.

red hat linux. unappreciated brilliance all the way.

I can't get past the first question. My answer is:

Bursh teeth, don't shave, don't shower, get to work late and not worry about it.

Well, I am difficult to install.

OS/2 Warp - hopeless! There should have been a "do you refer to your laptop by name, and stroke it lovingly when you think no-one's looking?" question. Oh well, at least it wasn't Windows.

McSweetie - Yes, this is Metafilter 6.03 - you may be experiencing problems if you have an earlier version installed.

Palm OS - punctual, straightforward and very useful. Your Mother wants you to do more with your life like your cousin Wince, but you're happy with who you are.

I can live with that.

chuq: I am GNU/HURD. (What the hell is that?)
GNU/Hurd is GNU's Mach-based Unix-flavour kernel. It's expected to be ready for real use sometime in 2050.

Couldn't be more accurate. I was trembling in mortal fear that I might turn out to be a unix clone and have to grow a beard.

I thought we'd seen the last of the witless 'which x are you?' quizzes.

Guess I was wrong.
