Default Operating Systems at Work/School

What Operating or Computer Systems does your school or workplace utilize?

At my Grocery Store, we primarily use 3 different computer technologies:

1. Registers: Toshiba SurePOS registers running Toshiba 4690 ACE (basically a proprietary version of Linux with a Java based GUI). They boot from a PXE Server we have in the back of the store.

2. Office Computers/Inventory Management: Windows 7 Enterprise with a network server login from our Corporate offices. That allows me to access the manager account from any computer in the store (and allow multiple logins), so if I wanted to check or print something from the computer, I can do it at the service desk, the managers office, Inventory Control, where ever I happen to be in the store.

3. Telephone system: Cisco CallManager. We have Cisco IP phones for all extensions except the checkout lanes, which use traditional phones on the network. Interestingly, while you can't dial out of the store from the checklane phones, you can still pick up a call that's been parked by someone or by the system.

My school uses Windows 7 Enterprise. It's all set up on a server so I can log on to any computer in the school.

We also have some Macs that run on an early version of Mac OS X (not sure which one) that are primarily used for art/design/media type subjects.

My school uses Window 7 Professional (even on the a-level art iMacs which makes no sense) and all of my work things are on Windows XP.

My school uses Windows 7 Enterprise (although that may change soon, not too sure) and Mac OS (I don't know what version, I haven't used the Macs yet). We have domain based user accounts, along with some hidden local accounts that only technology administration knows about (and me ha ha). At home I use everything from 98 SE to 10 and Mac OS 9 to Mac OS Sierra.

The hotel I work at uses Macs...with Windows installed...exemplary. The tills however are running Windows Server 2000, you know, that operating system that hasn't been supported for 7 years, and is trusted with enough data to commit identity theft, and is connected to the hotels network.

I hate the entire setup.

Work uses Windows 7 mostly. Some of our signal analyzers run on HP-UX (Agilent products, naturally).

School used Windows 7 as well although they're planning to downgrade to Windows 10.

As of about the time I graduated from high school a few months ago, the majority of the computers had been upgraded from Windows 7 Enterprise to Windows 10 Enterprise. All school-owned computers were on a domain centralized out of our province's capital city, so with that of course came the presence of group policies, etc. In addition, each student and staff member had their own private network drive.

In regards to the more internal stuff, such as what server OS they use, I just know that it's one of the older ones, so maybe 2003 (learned this from one of my tech teachers), but perhaps they've upgraded by now.

My school district provides students Chromebooks to use until the end of junior high. In high school, you get a new Chromebook. Of course, the Chromebooks use Chrome OS.

In engineering class and robotics club, we use Windows computers (They are a bit old, the computers are from 2008 and most of them never had any hardware changes since then). They are running Windows 7.

And in the lunch cafeteria, I am not sure what operating system they use for the POS. But I think it is likely Windows.

My name is Adrian, I am 14 years old, dunno if I am gay or str8 (I am probably more of straight). I am a geek, and I am proud of it. I love computers, and all kinds of nerdy technology.

I think Windows 7 Enterprise. It's alot easier for the school, because it has an easier way of setting up servers and school networks.

Our school uses Windows 10 Pro and Mac OS High Sierra on some Macs. Some because most of the macs run Windows 10 Pro as well. They use Windows 7 on some stuff that requires less maintenance like the computers for the turnstiles (they log what time the student enters/exit the campus).

My school uses $3,000 iMac computers to run... Windows. Yes, Windows. Not even the newest - Windows 7 Enterprise (or I forget if it is professional).

They have a rather complex set-up - each reboot is a fresh install with the required configurations (they use a system to restore to an image in which they have set). I have seen them use the OSX-side of it, although very rarely.

Other than that - I don't have work or any of that.

PM me ur cats
