what systems are you booting ?

It migh be interresting to share what we all are booting and possibly write something about it.
So, what systems are you currently booting on your computer(s) ?

1 - crunchbang
2 - arch linux
3 - android x86 4.4-r1.

Crunchbang is my main system at the top of the boot list, either in original form or upgraded
to debian jessie while keeping as much of the setting that came with cunchbang, next to
some occasonal theme switching. But the theme is one of the reasons i got glued to the original.

Arch linux stuck on me after i installed it the way the arch devellopers designed it to be installed.
to me it compares to how you would install msdos, only less humane, and i do not feel better or
wiser by entering a set of commands you just need to learn. But i truly enjoy and marvel while using
arch, its a freaking good os. So after i accidently wiped that partition with a dd i tried archbang and
thats what stuck there arch... with openbox.

android x86 4.4-r1 amazed me, you can breeze trough it with your keyboard using the arrows, tab,
enter, spacebar, etc... and it just works. Only now and then it gets a litle hard to know on what you
are going to press enter. An example would be the need to tab <--> to the ok button on the welcome
screen... but it still crashes when i chose the black hole wallpaper... next to that it is amazing compared
to the last time i ran android x86 (2012 or early 2013) which controlled like a ravaging monster hulk.
Also, do no change the java vm from dalvik to art if you are uncertain about it. wink

After edit and Clarification ;
It could be on actual hardware,  or virtual machines. Both have real world uses.

~ When jessie hits stable you could upgrade crunchbang and keep it alive a bit longer.

Re: what systems are you booting ?

Arch - Thinkpad X61
Could write on about Arch, but despite its flaws it's easy to contribute to and hard to break.

Windows 8.1 - Desktop (Intel)
Once you get through update hell and figure out the quirks, it's acceptable. It sees little use though.

Windows Phone 8.1 - Phone!
I got rid of my dumbphone  yikes After reading some reviews, Android was too complicated and iOS too expensive.

Go get it.  I just read something earlier this morning via LXer about it being released, although I think I would choose Antergos over Mint.

Arch, Windows 10 (not for much longer...) and Fedora 20 (purely for the SELinux setup)

EDIT: Just set up GhostBSD 4.0 in a VM (there's no way I'm trusting the notorious BSD installer on bare metal).

Re: what systems are you booting ?

Notebook (typing from it right now)
Arch Linux
Openbox, stole tint2 config and alot of the keyboard shortcuts from #!

Netbook
OpenBSD
cwm, mostly for reasons of curiosity

Desktop1
Arch Linux
Openbox, same deal as my Notebook

Desktop2
Arch Linux
Openbox, alot of bloaty stuff installed and mainly used for playing games and streaming videos.

Home Server
FreeBSD
no desktop, using it for central storage of files (yay, ZFS).

I also have various virtual machines on Desktop1 to try different distributions, window managers and desktop environments. Among those there is, of course, a #! installation.
I might switch to FreeBSD for some of the Arch boxes in the future, although I have to say, it's hard since I got so comfortable  using pacman...

Yes sir and I hear ya.

If it were solely up to me, I'd leave Antergos where it's at. Yet, being what it is and the purpose it serves upon our coffee table, Mint Cinnamon is probably a better choice and it truly is a beautifully done system as well. I believe the stable release is due out in a couple days, could grab the RC and update later but there's no rush. 

I do have a soft place for Gnome 3.14 and Antergos in particular. We've got a Sony Vaio no one is using at the moment, think I'll throw Antergos on it... Just for fun.   smile

Re: what systems are you booting ?

On the main comp currently;

Host OS - Mac OS X
Used for work (Adobe and Corel suites),  iPhone sync and backup, music and VMware sessions.

Guest OS 1 - OpenBSD
Considered my main OS (posting this message from it) for my browsing, *nixing, and all non-work related important sh*t.

Guest OS 2 - Bitrig
A fork of OpenBSD. I'm acquainted with the devs, so run this often and provide feedback. Might become my main OS in future.

Guest OS 3 - Debian Linux
Considered my trashy-crack-hoe-OS. Infested with crap like Flash, Java and systemd. Hardly used. I won't bat an eyelid when it clusterf*cks itself.

Re: what systems are you booting ?

=:physical:=
desktop & laptop each 2 versions of archlinux (so 4 altogether, 3 of which run some sort of minimal openbox setup, and the last one has 2 users with icewm and pekwm resp.).
honestly i think it's a mess - the systems are so similar but not the same because i set them all up manually.
i really have to get some sort of personal installer script, or dotfiles on github, or learn how to use rsync or remastersys or sth...

=:virtual:=
crunchbang
windows & android when doing web development


there's still a couple of unused partitions, but i'm not so much into actual distro-hopping these days, although i like to try new things.
i thought setting up different users with different wm's, all archlinux-based, might be better.
all this sytem maintenance stuff takes a while to learn and get cumfy with, i really don't see how people can jump from pacman to yum to apt and sysvinit and systemd, and back again...
archlinux with an lts kernel has worked well for me in the last year or so; i'm able to manage it without getting lost.
