Poll: What is the primary operating system you use for developing Perl applications?

I already ran two quick polls about IDE usage in the Perl community.
Let me run a new one asking What is the primary operating system you use for developing Perl applications?. I'd appreciate if you invested 5 secs to answer it.

I answered the poll assuming "work". This kinda depends. Does work/play matter? I mean, I use Ubuntu at work and deploy, test and tweak on Solaris. I use a Mac at home and deploy to Ubuntu.

Ubuntu and OpenBSD

I agree with meraxes...I use Linux RHEL at work, but Linux Ubuntu at home. But unlike meraxes, I voted for the one I use at home, since that's the one where I had a choice in the matter.

No OpenBSD on the poll.

Yeah, same boat here. Ubuntu at work, OS X at home (though I'm so miffed with Apple that I might ditch them for my next laptop).

Do you want to know which OS runs my development tools (windows vista)? Or which OS runs my development code (centos)?
