Good analogies. I was just curious 'cause I had never even heard of some of those operating systems. I was wondering if there was a big difference in how they all performed and how different they all were from each other. I didn't know a single computer could have more than one system.

Thank you! I have only used a Mac thing once, and that was like trying to write with my left hand after Windows and Linux!

I have also used - to varying degrees - several of the different permutations of Windows and Linux...

Only three, actually. Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and XP are all on one computer
