Ok, so since pretty much all computers these days are capable of running more than one operating system, I was curious to see who all actually is running more than one OS. If you are, post your setup and let us know what you're using.

I'm running OSX Leopard using VMware fusion that's running Windows XP Pro.





Post yours if you've got em.

I understand why some people want to dual boot, but for someone like me who doesn't really have any complaints against Vista, I'm fine with running just that.
mmmk.

what are the advantages of running multiple OS'?

Recovery if one messes up. I just love linux, but I'm more familiar with Windows, so I kept Windows.

Aside from being able to make people go "...wait...you're running windows on a mac...huh?" it pretty much removes all software restrictions.

I have Ubuntu Edgy and XP Home on my laptop, but I'm going to get rid of Ubuntu to make more room for the XP partition.

Is it on a partition or something? If so you should be able to wipe the partition and de-partition your HD to give your main windows more space.

I'm using Vista as my main OS and XP as my dedicated music production OS.

In a couple of months I will buy a 1GB HD for documents only and attempt to triple boot Vista, Mac OS X, and Linux on my current 320GB HD.

Threadstarter, could you go into detail on how VMware works?

i've used mixed Win2k/XP/Gentoo/Debian
but in both cases I just used one of the two for 98% of the time (something broke with the video drivers in linux after like a year than I just went back to windows and eventually reformatted the drive with just XP)

now I just use XP and have my fileserver that runs linux if I need the console (the only thing that makes linux neat)
or I just use cygwin in the windows PCs

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vmware

Basically you install it like any other program, provide it with a copy of whatever OS you want to run parallel to your main OS (you need a copy of the OS and a serial number...both easily obtained with torrents), and it does the rest. Pretty simple actually.

Hmm, if it was 2 versions of OSX I would probably be able to help more, but I'm not as familiar with windows/fat32/ect when it comes to stuff like that. Sorry.
