Linux, on 3 PCs.

Windows only 1 laptop because it crashes too much but it's necessary for my son's university (they require it to be Windows, no choice allowed). Previous laptop got screwed over by a Microsoft update, and basically bricked.

I know i am late to the voting party, just wanted to throw my 2 cents in

Windows is my primary O.S. on my primary machine because it is easier to run games on, and I am integrated into the speech recognition.
Linux Mint is my primary on my alternate machine
Solus looks somewhat promising for the future

and of course, this is just my personal opinion, but apple/mac should not be bothered to be catered to. They will rip out core functionality from the o.s. and hardware and assume their 'cult' will keep paying more than double the price for less, and they do. you cannot bother with a company and o.s. that will rip the floor out from under you after your investment of time and effort as a developer

Linux Mint Cinnamon Sylvia 18.2LTE with all updates running on Intel Xeon e3-1246v3 and 32GB of 1600MHz DDR3 in C622PCH with NVidia GTX960 with 4GB of DDR5. This machine dual boots Windows 7 Pro x64. Both OSs browse with Waterfox Classic. I have no problems in MakeHuman on Linux. I do not run it on Windows. DAZ and Poser run on that. This machine has been running Mint steady for about a year and a half.

Just added my vote and it's Linux for me, too. These results are very promising for Linux, and very revealing regards the percentage of people now using Linux!
Just goes to show what complete and utter BS the various rigged surveys out there are talking!

I recently upgraded my main workstation to Linux Mint Cinnamon 20.2 Uma.

This runs on a custom built cube form factor microATX box powered by an 850watt Seasonic PSU, featuring a Xeon 1246v3 CPU cooled by Noctua and a Gigabyte GTX 960 GPU booting from a Samsung Evo 860 SSD with 500GB of storage space.

It is super fast. Running MH 1.2.0 on this machine is a breeze and so far, everything works as advertised. I could not be happier. It is as though MH was made to work best on Linux!
