Discussion on: What OS do you use for development?

As an additional funny anecdote since everyone else's answers are longer than one word, I lost a dual-boot to OS updates expanding into the other OS's boot sector, so I started thinking about VMs. VirtualBox and the like seemed to resource-intensive to realistically run Windows in, so I dug some more and found Xen, and was like 'hey, I'm supposed to be a developer, roight? I bet I can figure this out.' lol

In any event, like 2+ years later I wrote this:
I still can't figure out how to do wifi or get sound, let alone pass through the GPU (like, even an Intel Integrated), but, progress.
