I am wondering what people run on thier personal home machines for doing things like e-mail, web surfing, chat, ect... I know a lot of you use linux for servers and database and all that jazz, which its great for, but I wonder what people use for their primary workstations.

Windows for games like Counter Strike: Source and Diablo II.
