About the time the Windows XP came out I stopped having multiple OSes on my computers and switched to multiple computers. Within the past year I have gone back to multiple OSes on the computers, but this time I am using Virtualization instead of different partitions and screwing with the boot loaders.

I still have mutiple computers though. Two boxes used as servers, but they get moved from Windows 2003 to Windows 2008 and back, or Debian Linux, to Windows back to Linux. The Macbook Pro, the Windows laptop, the Linux netbook, the Windows Desktop (for gaming), etc.

I don't even know what my first one was except that it was a green screen and it sucked using it lol...I'm guessing it was some form of DOS.
