In my CV, I have a line that says:

OSs: Windows, Mac OS X and Linux

Is there a word (that a human could understand) that laconically says that I am able to work on all OSs?


George is able to work on all operating systems, i.e. Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

Find X so that one could say:

George is X. // or something like that

  • Do you differentiate between having the capacity to work on all of them if you were to learn them and having experience with all of them? Have you worked on AIX, VxWorks, ThreadX, FreeRTOS, LynxOS, minix, EmBOS, Vax VMS...? – Jim Jul 24 '16 at 22:33
  • I suspect someone will flag this as a "single word request without context". The question would be a little clearer if you gave an example sentence. – Benjamin Kuykendall Jul 24 '16 at 22:33
  • @Jim I haven't worked in all flavors of Ubuntu for example. However, I have worked with all three OSs, but going into details on the flavors is not my cup of tea (it that's what you are asking). Benjamin thanks, I saw that in the tag, but I thought what I had was enough, updated! – gsamaras Jul 24 '16 at 22:36

    @Jim I thought so, that's why I asked. Well I didn't even know the existed, so no I would like to keep in the Big Three range (and probably the person who is going to read my CV also knows only these three, so I would say that we can assume to "all"). Oh OK, now I saw your edit.. – gsamaras Jul 24 '16 at 22:39

    Don't limit yourself to a single word. two or three words might be the better option in the end. – Mitch Jul 24 '16 at 22:41

One that comes to mind is multi-platform:

multi-platform adjective

Compatible with or involving more than one type of computer or operating system

Source: Oxford Dictionaries Online

(You'd probably have to modify it a bit: OSs: Multiple or I can work with multiple platforms.)

Bear in mind, though, I see nothing wrong with simply listing those three OSs as you have done.
