I run far too many!

Currently, I have:

1. Windows XP Professional SP3

2. Windows 2000 Professional SP4

3. Windows 98 Second Edition + Unofficial Service Pack 2 & all the updates I can find on the web

4. MS-DOS 6.22 & Windows 3.11 For Workgroups (struggling with drivers for stuff here)

5. Ubuntu 9.10

Need to tidy it up a bit though.

Just the one here; I've got a multi-PC setup with a KVM and an array of screens. :whistle:

Every PC runs it's own OS (although they're not all on at the same time).

Oh, you mean on one computer? ;)

(I voted 20, all the OSes I've ever multi-booted with any other OS.)

The most I've had at once on a single computer was 6, but that was for a class. It was:

  1. Windows 2000 Pro
  2. Windows 2000 Server
  3. Windows XP Pro
  4. Windows Server 2003
  5. Windows Vista Enterprise
  6. Red Hat Fedora 6

--Ick!

When I multiboot at home, it's usually 2 or 3 of these:

  1. Slackware 12 (Linux)
  2. Slackware 13 (Linux)
  3. Absolute Linux
  4. Windows XP Pro
  5. Ubuntu (Linux)
  6. Knoppix (Linux)...haven't used that one for a while, though.

...once FireFox w NoScript/Flashblock have been configured sensibly...
You forgot Better Privacy.

Put those 3 together and that's as safe as you get without anonymous websurfing and using a U3 browser in "portable mode".

On this desktop PC, I currently have Win2k SP4 with UURollup v9b and on the laptop PC that I'm using, I have Windows 95 OSR2.

I still have the GRiD 2270 laptop, it has Windows 3.1 w/pen extensions, but it's not working right now, because the battery pack stopped holding a charge. :(

Does having guests OS running in VirtualBox count?

Anyway, I have Windows 7 x64 installed on one of my SSD's, Windows 8 x64 installed on my other SSD and Windows 98 and Windows ME running on VirtualBox, which comes to a total of 4, but technically, I have one OS which is Windows 7 x64.
