The machine I'm on right now is running Win2K.

If I ever get off my ass and power up the pile of parts laying near me it'll be running Solaris x86.

You can get it free now from sun.com.

I use XP Pro on the majority of my installs. I also have OSX running dual boot on my FTP server (AMD Powered of course) and various Linux distros including live ones like Knoppix. Never limit yourself to one OS.

Seriously?
Novell is a'ight, but it's just DOS with a couple of server-side extensions (NDS being the biggest).

Novell had its hayday, but that time is passed. Do not spend too much time getting into Novell - in the real world it is virtually invisible in the market. If you choose that path, you are severely limited in work possibilities.

UNIX (Solaris in particular), Linux, and Windows Server (2003) are where I recommend you concentrate. The most prolific OS = Windows, desktop and server. There are VERY few industries that do not employ Windows.

This is all true but Novell will make a comeback with the Suse Linux/Netware Hybrid. The security features that Novell provides are second to none. I think there will always be a need for that. even if the market is a niche, there are businesses that have greater than average security needs.

Im not neccesarily concentrating on any OS but I dont want to be at a disadvantage from not knowing how to use Novell.

For the old hardware I'd reccomend BSD or a speciality linux distro. For certain any of the modern Desktops (KDE/Gnome) are gonna be painful on that old machine. I wouldn't want to use it for much more than a firewall or proxy server.

As for me I'm running win2k most of the time right now but I dual boot into Suse 9.3. I keep planning to upgrade (sidegrade?) to 10 but haven't gotten around to it yet. I do some gaming so win2k is a necessary evil and lately I had almost only used my PC for BF2.

I use a couple windows machines and a couple fedora machines. Figured I would use Fedora since we use redhat at work, so figured it was a good way to play with something similar.
