Xubuntu 12.04 (Xfce 4.8) on a free PC that was given to me because the hard drive was going bad. I ripped all the drives from the PC to scrap/reuse them, and am running Xubuntu completely from a USB flash drive. There are a few bugs, but it seems to be running fairly well. If I ever get around to getting another hard drive in this machine, I'm going to keep using Xubuntu; it's a nice OS.

Why would you want to? I have never and will never understand why people want to take their current operating system and make it look like another. You can easily use all three operating systems. OS X can be installed on most PC hardware (at least on the Intel side).

Decided to finally try out a tiling window manager. Definitely takes a bit to get used to but I kinda like it:

Arch Linux with i3-wm
