Let me guess...

...you happened to inherit a disk from a parent or other family member who used to use XP but no longer does? :D

Laptop:
HDD1(7200rpm - 250 GB): Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter (Build 7601, SP1, x64), OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 (x86_64, Beta Intel GMA X3100 video driver)
HDD2(5200 rpm - 160 GB): CentOS 6.5 (x86)
Windows Tablet: Windows 10 Home (x86), with a very nice option to get back to the fast not-buggy 8.1 :)
OldPhone: Android 6.0.1 (CyanogenMod rom, it's official last update from Samsung it's Android 4.3 which used to run very bad - GT-I9300)
OldiPhone: iOS 6.1.6 - using until Saturday - with micro sim -> sim adapter
NewiPhone: Waiting until Saturday to get it and upgrade it to the latest iOS 9 :) - But I can't use it because I have a micro sim, not a nano one :(

I use Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter for almost everything including, work, entertainment, server use, etc.
I used OS X Yosemite for entertainment stuff and Windows 10 replacement, now I didn't boot it in months, but I have OS X Server installed and configured on it so it can be used as a server ( https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/os-x-se ... 8097?mt=12 ) - taken from a pirate called the internet - .
I use Windows 10 when I'm on go, or I want to play a game which doesn't run fine or it doesn't run at all on my laptop.
I use CentOS 6.5 to run a Craftbukkit Minecraft server on it and sometime play Minecraft since my CPU can handle that kind of work :) .
I use, used Android 6.0.1 as a main phone OS, but since my android phone doesn't work very well anymore, I changed to my old iPhone 3GS.
I use, used iOS 6.1.6 as a main phone OS, but it's time to change to a newer iPhone which I'm waiting to get on Saturday :) .
I will use iOS 9.3.X as a main phone OS, but not right now because I don't have the required hardware yet :( (but i'll get it on Saturday, July 16).

Oh, and that 5200 rpm hard drive was the hard drive with which my laptop came with, but I upgraded it some years ago with that bigger and faster hard drive :). Yes, hackintosh.

I used to change my main OS based on what I wanted at that time, but I want to force myself to stick with that configuration, even if I'm starting to get bored of those "old" UI's.

And one more thing:
OldPC - ZorinOS (x86), Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter (Build 7601, SP1, x64)
On that PC, ZorinOS was a main os but it started to fail on me, Windows Server 2008 R2 it's now the main OS I use when I'm on it, but I don't use that PC because of it's very old hard drive which started to "die" I think... - I talked about it in a other post I made, check the Windows 7 subforum - .

I think that's all..
