i think id pick hurd, after all, it will still use the gnu system so ill already know the basic tools , if not hurd then some other kernel, as long as i can still pick which programs i want/don't want to have
The Macintosh and Windows choices are a bit too vague IMO. I hated MacOS prior to OS X, and Windows sucked prior to Win2000 (NT4 was decent, sorta). Also, if I hadn't learned about Linux I may have known about nothing else other than Unix, which I probably wouldn't use while Win2000 and OSX were available.
I'd say I'd most likely be using Win2000.
If Linux were just now suddenly unavailable somehow, I'd probably go with a BSD.
