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 XP. There's no reason for me to use linux as a workstation, for as long as I'm playing games on it. Dual booting would be pointless.

Me too. Windows XP is still my main OS to use everyday. But there is this Linux OS desktop at my office that I keep using sometimes.
