Windows vs. Mac vs. Linux v2

Second version of this poll. I've narrowed down the choices a bit. I've also provided an "other" field so that you can write your own stuff in there. Also, someone pointed out that I missed an operating system in the versatility part my first time around. Sorry about that, honest mistake. I've rectified the problem this time. =) So... here it is again. yet another poll to voice your opinion, Windows, Mac, or Linux? (I've included both Windows XP and Windows Vista because they both seem to be competing with each other these days.)

63% (7) Mac OS X
