I'm definitely a Chrome...or maybe none of the above
But "Post-modern... and live in the cloud?" Not really. Truth be told, my answers to a lot of the questions were "none of the above." Now what OS does that make me?

Color me Windows...for the most part. But Branson and Michael Buble?

Re: I'm definitely a Chrome...or maybe none of the above
Right there with you, Marilyn. Who knew brushing your teeth at night or driving a Toyota hybrid (Camry, not Prius though!) could determine my OS?! Fun quiz, much better than the latest "pick a door" or "which Harry Potter character" quiz floating around FB. Sharing now!

Curb Your Enthusiasm
I always saw Larry David as a Mac guy, not Windows. Hmmm.

Which Desktop OS am I?
I am definitely a Linux user and I happen to KNOW the NSA is watching me!

Chrome IS Linux, so you're a Linux user....

 oh, and Android is also Linux.

Re: Linux since 2002
Man you are irritating. Wouldn't your company save money by firing you and actually paying InfoWeek for RoboLinux advertising? Get a real job, please.

Re: I'm definitely a Chrome...or maybe none of the above
I've been doing this so long that answering a quiz like that would scream "green screen mainframe timesharing".

Not a lot of arguments over emulators back in those days....  :-)
