Linux and the various BSD systems. They work reliably, and provide a decent set of system calls and libraries. Unlike DOS, they run in 32 (or 64) bit mode, which feels much cleaner than 16-bit coding. I stopped supporting Windows a while back; it was just too painful for me to continue working with.

Windows. It's my workstation OS and thus the handy tools that represent the majority of my programs are mostly used on this platform.

sleepsleep, I was on the same situation as you.
I've been mostly Windows developer for years. Too much deep into one platform to make a switch.
So, I decided to try a dual boot.
By the way, Ubuntu is very nice distribution. Especially the little brother called Xubuntu which uses XFCE, a light-weight window manager.
I'm using it now, and I don't need to boot WinXP anymore. Now I'm developing program for both platforms.
This is great knowledge to have.

I think you could try Ubuntu or Kubuntu or Xubuntu. They use the same base, but differente window manager and set of applications.
Another cool distribution is Mandriva.

Don't do a total switch. It's nice to have WinXP around too.
But with 10GB you can install Linux on another partition and start playing.

You can begin using cross-platform languages like Python, so the same knowledge is valid on Win and Linux. And then you can try C, and ASM to know about the low-level aspects of Linux.
You can have lots of fun and yet gain knowledge for some job.

Are anyone using / have tried PC-BSD?
http://www.pcbsd.org/

Looks pretty cool and easiest way to get a BSD system!

DOS (attempting to be compatible with FreeDOS, MS-DOS, DR-DOS, DOSBox, Win XP's DOS prompt etc., if possible) although nothing of mine is really that useful, just tiny utils mostly.

FreeBSD mainly, followed by Windows x64 (which I am only getting back into).

Most of my recent work has been on the b0 compiler which is cross platform... so a good mix of both BSD and Win.

Does DexOS count as "DOS" or as "other" ? Laughing

@NTOSKRNL_VXE, I would say it is a Dos, but as most people think that a Dos, needs to be compatable with Ms-Dos and DexOS is not, they would say its not.
But to me a Dos is anything thats single-tasking, runs in ring0 and can directly accsess hardware.
Just like the xbox can, see xbox spec

Dex, I'd call that DOS-ish or even (weakly) DOS-related.

I use FASM for my own OS most of the time, Very Happy but I use it under Windows. Crying or Very sad The reason for this is that I've coded a small C-like language with FASM as assembler and my compiler runs under Windows. I could compile my compiler also for Linux, but SuSE takes too long to load and the BASIC I use to compile my C-compiler doesn't run under (K)Ubuntu... Embarassed

m, the smallest Linux I know of is tomsrtbt (2 MB), but Damn Small Linux (50 MB) is probably okay too for non-dialup internet connections. (No, I don't really use Linux, but it ain't horrible I guess, and certainly any OS could always be improved a bit.) BTW, I think Ubuntu will mail you a free CD (last I heard, never investigated).

BTW, I still think FreeDOS is small, useful, and fun. Smile But use something else if you must. Razz

EDIT: Don't forget that FASM runs on 8 different OSes (or more, depending on how you count).
