Yes, but my primary desktop is Mac. Its future replacement is likely to be a Linux desktop. Don't ask me which distro.I haven't used Windows in about 13 years and truthfully, I don't miss it.
Are you running Linux now?
My nephew works for Oracle.Yes, but my primary desktop is Mac. Its future replacement is likely to be a Linux desktop. Don't ask me which distro.
I run virtual machines on the Mac. They include a Linux desktop (currently Linux Mint Cinnamon). There are also a variety of Windows, Linux, Mac and other OS desktops and server virtual machines related to previous work and current projects. The selection of virtual machines changes often. Right now, it consists of: 6 Linux, 5 Windows, and 3 Mac. (A Debian server virtual machine has 5 separate snapshot threads going right now, but I counted it as "1".)
I also keep a few personal servers on the internet. They run Linux.
I rent two virtual private servers (VPS) for a few dollars a month each. (You can find small ones for $1 a month if you know where to look.) I like to have at least one VPS available on the internet. One VPS expires next month and I won't renew it; the seller kept raising prices year over year.
I have been experimenting with Oracle Cloud Free Tier for the past few months to gain experience with using a large cloud provider. I have four free Linux servers with Oracle - two 1GB AMD and two 12 GB ARM. Each pair runs Ubuntu 22.04 and Oracle Linux. They are slow, but run well. They are currently idle, risking termination by Oracle. (Note: In my opinion, the aggravation of the sign up and "instance" creation processes makes Oracle Cloud Free Tier not worth the effort. You would be much happier spending a few dollars a month for a paid VPS, and save yourself dealing with much extra complexity, too.)
Errmm.....how on earth do you describe a computer operating system as being "sexy"? Huh??I still have a laptop with GhostBSD (the sexiest of the BSDs).

In 2014 on somebody else's computer I stumbled upon the "two different versions of Internet Explorer". Because the "radical" one was the beginning of Edge, ROFL. It looked no more than a screen where the user throws the mouse cursor left to get one menu, or throws it to the right-hand side to get a different menu. Otherwise the user still needed the keyboard to tell it to which web address to navigate to. Nope, I wasn't going to use any on-screen keyboard for it.It was that poor support coupled with the disappearance of commonly intuitive Windows user interface elements that made Windows 8 so abysmally bad. Users were desperately confused. Preferences and system configurations were split between the old Control Panel and the newer Settings. Some settings could be configured through both interfaces.

I've always loved swoopy, curvy, streamlined shapes.
