    I like a bit of everything

    My current Python work is done on a Linux SUSE 9.1 Pro laptop, but I also have a multiboot machine with:
    Windows XP
    Suse 9.1 Pro
    Redhat 9
    Fedora 2
    SUSE 8.1
    Debian Sarge
    (For platform compatibility testing.)

    My forum posts samples are usually done on my Wordprocessor (Windows XP laptop ).

    Expanding the public record . I prefer to use my Mac (1Ghz G4 iBook) for anything more than a little script because Apples Xcode IDE is such a good development tool, and good tools make make life easier!

    I do also use Windows XP Home and Pro, and keep meaning to install Suse Linux but never seem to get around to it .

    Maybe tonight!

    I think python is great. I wrote most of my code back when i used windows but the same code run aswell if not better now without any change. As far as python is concerned os doesn't matter (although i have found the http stuff runs a lot better under linux, does anyone know why?)
