Very cool.  OS/2 Warp.  Feelings of abandonment from your back-satabbing step brother.  I don't even wanna discuss it.

It get's worse, my girlfriend is Slackware Linux, maybe I should aspire another  career.

Okay, ha ha. If you get Debian it says "...they're more apt to love you." That was more clever than I was expecting.

Funny thing. I take the test twice, and change slightly my answers. Both times PalmOS.

"I take the test twice" should be (I hope) "I did take the test twice"

Windows XP... I wonder if that's good or bad.

HP-UX - "Still strong despite the passage of time.  Though few understand you, those who do love you deeply and appreciate you."

Given how many of those questions didn't have an answer which applied to me...

I think I took this test a while back and I was a Mac.

Yep, took it again and I'm OSX.

I'm neither a number, nor an operating system nor any other kind of limited analogical referent to make Generation X'ers go ooooo.

Nice one. The whole site seems to be pretty cool on the first glance.

Well, I'm GNU/HURD. However I managed to become that.

Simon: who are you?

Quoth the Inquisitor, in Babylon 5:
    '...Unacceptable!.  What a sad thing you are.  Unable to answer such a simple question without falling back on references, and genealogies and what other people call you.  Have you nothing of your own?  Nothing to stand on
that is not provided, defined, delineated, stamped, sanctioned, numbered and approved by others.  How can you be expected to fight for someone else when you haven't the fairest idea -who- -you- -are-?'

Funny that you eschew any kind of self-inflicted personality summation, yet you sign your posts with an identifier given you by someone else. [grin]

Even worse than that, he refers to people as "Gen Xers".

He's a rebel without a cause, it seems to me.

Without societal refrences, how would you know what you were? If you were raised by wolves you might have no sense of self in the traditional sense - you are part of a pack. Without digressing into an overly Cartesian discussion, how do you know what you are without these references?

And may I say, that episode of B5 is truly excellent.

PalmOS... I guess that's not too far off.

BTW, what is Apple DOS 3.1? 3.3 was the first version with 16 sector floppies, 3.2 had 13 sector floppies, before that I don't know what existed, after that it was ProDOS 1.0 (and up).
