How many pc's do you own and with what OS?

My family and friends have been harassing me for owning/running 3 desktops (with several harddrives to make like I have even more pc's) and one laptop. I just realized when looking at the Gallery of 'Workstation', most posters own at least 3 PC's. All of a sudden, I feel as if I'm among friends. How many pc's do you own and under what OS's? Other threads have already asked what you use your pc's for so I don't want to duplicate the discussion. I'm just curious what the distribution of pc ownership is. If you would like to give some description of their usage, that would be good too.

I'm running ...
1 - AMD64 3200, 1.0 Gig Ram, Fedora Core 5
1 - ECS, Duron 1.7 GHz, 512 M Ram, CentOS 4 (file and web server)
1 - MSI, P4 1.8 GHz, 1 Gig Ram, CentOS 4 (file and print server)
1 - ThinkPad A31, XP Laptop, P4 1.8 GHz, 384 M Ram
1 - Acer Aspire 5002 Laptop, AMD Turion 64, 1 Gig Ram, 100 Gig HD, Ubuntu 8.04 as host and Fedora 9 in Virtualbox, Original WinXP removed.
1 - eeePC
1 - MAC Book Pro
1 - Acer Aspire One Netbook
1 - Asus eeePC 1000 - eeebuntu
1 - HP 1000 Netbook

Stats update:
So far, looking at those who voted, the 1 pc owner is the minority. We need more voters.

It's almost been a year since this thread started. Many forum viewers have visited and contributed to this thread. A recent post really made this thread show it's true value.

If you're visiting this post for the first time or the 10th time, update this thread with updates you have made to your addiction. How many pc's do you own and running what OS's.

I've got my main machine running FC2 and Win XP, my test box (on loan to my sister) with FC3 and XP and my wife's machine with just XP (but I still love her). All boxes are boring beige towers with nothing special as far as guts - but have very nice flat screens!

I've been considering to buy nice thin flat screens. My worry is what am I going to do with all that space recovered from the 17inch monitors on my desk?

I have one pc that I use for school with windows xp. Its a 2.0 ghz pentium 4 with a gig of ram and a nice video card.
I have another pc that I use for a server. At the moment debian is installed on it (fedora was just taking up too much hd space) but I don't have it fully configured. 1.1 ghz duron, 512 megs of ram, 40 gb hdd, onboard everything. fairly quiet
I have yet another pc partially dismantled in the desk cabinet. its a dual pentium 3 550 mhz, 512 megs of ram, 20 gb hard drive, i am thinking of removing one of the processors for heat purposes and using it as a router.
My last pc is not really mine, its a company issued laptop, but i'm the head of the IT department, so I use it anyway. It has fedora core 3 on it, no plans to change that. 2.66 ghz pentium 4, 40 gb hard drive. the rest is detailed in my signature.

Enjoy it! (I just got a 19" TFT to replace my tube 17" and my "desk" is a two-foot wide table. I needed the space!

Current count:
Two self-built desktop boxes (unfortunately in full-tower cases - them suckers is noisy), both on FC3
One IBM T-41, also running FC3
The home-control system and backup firewall on FC1 (if it ain't broke and you don't use it much, don't fix it).
