Not sure I've heard of 'dual boot' as an OS and I'm assuming you mean OS X when you've put Mac Wink

Dual boot - Vista and Windows 7 - which answer  Huh
When changing the poll I would suggest allowing more than one vote and then you can remove the dual boot option

Shame it doesn't allow multiple answers. I use ubuntu server 64bit on my server, and Win 7 64bit on the main gaming PC.

Windows on all PCs at home.
Basically, over the years I have spend quite a lot on software so can't see me changing OS any time soon.
I have a Ubuntu live CD to get me out of the most sticky of situations but doesn't happen that often.

Shall I add Ubuntu to my choice even though I only use it occasionally when Windows fails me on something?

Most of my (several) systems are dual-boot between different versions of Windows (one of which is always a version of XP - usually Pro).
I presume your dual-boot isn't intended to cover that.  Roll eyes

I also assume by dual boot you mean two DIFFERENT OS's not 2x M$/Linux etc.
But I only use Linux Mint on my PC's  Cheesy
Don't even dual boot if I need an alternative OS I have Virtualbox and can have it up and running in minutes.
