Debian with XFCE, as well as Windows 7. However since a cat messed up my laptop I've been entirely on Debian. With a small Win XP Partition.

^^ the peer pressure is usually from hipsters and their Apple products. Nobody boasts about Windows lol

Trick question for me. I prefer using Linux, but right now I'm using Windows XP because I've been dragging my feet on installing Gentoo onto one of my drives. I predict that at some point in the next few weeks, I will grow so sick of Windows that I will wipe my drive clean and start from scratch with a proper operating system. :P Dual boot, most likely, so I can still use Photoshop or play various computer games (I dislike using Wine or virtual machines).

Using Windows isn't a result of peer pressure, it's because it's usually already installed when you buy the computer.

Linux Mint 12.0 for most things, but I do keep a Windows 7 partition so that I can access iTunes and a few other pieces of software that don't run on Linux, and so that I have something useful (and because this is Windows I'm using that term with the broadest possible meaning) left on my computer if I manage to mess up the Linux partition.
