Vista 64 Home Premium. Have had no problems with it whatsoever since Sp1. I'm looking forward to Windows 7.

It expires the summer of 2010. You have some time. Just buy Windows 7 when it comes out.
Oh Windows 7 is gonna release at the same time the beta closes?
release is October 09; so in a few months unless it gets delayed and then they will probably push the RC if that happens.

OSX 10.5 but i'm not sure if that's Leopard or what.

My desktop dual boots Vista and Win 7 both 64 bit, my laptop duals 32-bit XP and Ubuntu. I dabble with the Win7 and Ubuntu, neither of them get used much. I don't mind Ubuntu, but I don't see why I should use it when I've got the XP license. Haven't spent enough time with Win7 to have all of my programs installed to it, otherwise I'd probably use it more.

i'm running windows XP 32bit. vista still has some problems that i have seen from my friend's computer. i don't enjoy buying a new operating system like that.

I run Vista Ultimate.

#59 Posted by Maxszy (2111 posts) -

Vista on my main PC, and XP on my netbook. Probably will upgrade to Win 7 once it comes out though.

Windows 7 RC

So far a much more positive experience than Vista. The biggest complaint I have is that after closing a resource intensive program (game, photoshop, whatever) W7 tends to hang for a bit, which XP and Vista never did.

Ahh ME, how horrible you were... anyway I'm currently running OSX Leopard

#67 Posted by wipu (62 posts) -

Windows 7 RC. Maybe the best Windows OS I've ever used.

#68 Posted by MerlijnVH (115 posts) -

I do most of my stuff under Mac OS X Leopard on my Mac, when I'm going for some gaming I use BootCamp for Windows 7 RC. Love them both.

Im using the Windows 7 64 Bit RC

#70 Edited by TheHBK (5664 posts) -

Got me Mac OS X Leopard, but will upgrade to Snow Leopard since I have been reading that in terms of speed it is the shit.  But I also have WIndows 7 RC on bootcamp on my Macbook Pro so I can play any PC games that I want, also there in case Star Wars the Old Republic doesnt come out on Mac OS.

#71 Posted by belaraphon (444 posts) -

vista at the moment, but eagerly looking forward to windows 7 upon retail release!

#72 Posted by Gorillawhat (1371 posts) -

Snow leopard isn't out yet BTW. Unless you're a developer and Apple is seeding it to you.

#73 Posted by CoverlessTech (763 posts) -

Vista and Kubuntu mostly.

I can't believe people still hate on Vista, since SP1 I haven't had any problems with it what so ever. I'll admit that pre-SP1 it was pretty glitchy(damn thing would blue screen every time it went to sleep and sleep wouldn't turn off) but since SP1(it's onto SP2 now) I haven't had any problems.

Windows Vista 64-bit.

#75 Posted by Jambones (1726 posts) -

Linux. Thinking about getting a copy of Windows 7 to dual boot and satisfy some cravings.

#76 Posted by Gamer_152 (14303 posts) -

I run Windows XP on my desktop and my laptop. I wouldn't mind Vista but XP gets the job done fine for me.

#77 Posted by 71Ranchero (3242 posts) -

Shocked that Vista is #1. 

I run Xp, partly becouse my pc is crap and partly becouse my pc is realy crap.

Vista Ultimate x32 and x64, and I have an old Mac running OS 9. Xboxes have my linux distros. up. It's so I can code while I game, and game while I code!
#80 Posted by miscall (14 posts) -

I dual boot Ubuntu and a stripped down version of Vista.

I tried Windows 7, and I am definitely going to be replacing my current Vista setup with that, but I'm going to wait until it launches proper.

#81 Posted by darkgoth678 (378 posts) -

Vista currently but when my Windows 7 comes in its going straight to that!

#82 Posted by ki11tank (734 posts) -

#83 Posted by JoeKerr (12 posts) -

I run Ubuntu 9.04 (not dual boot) its awesome but some games just wont run through wine which sucks

#84 Posted by lilburtonboy7489 (1992 posts) -

right now i'm running Vista Ultimate 64-bit. 
however, I get Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit for free 3 weeks before it is released....so that will be awesome. 

#85 Posted by CitizenKane (10791 posts) -
@lilburtonboy7489: I am jealous of you.  How are you able to get it early?
I wish I could get Windows 7 this year, but I won't have to money to get it and all the games I want.  Also, I am fine with Vista right now.

#92 Posted by myketuna (1785 posts) -

Windows XP SP3. Gonna stay with this until I upgrade to Windows 7/Windows XP's long term whatever support is over. I think that'll be around 2011. By then hopefully SP1 of Windows 7 will be out. Then I'll just buy that.

My Main unit is Windows XP(Plus Win for Work 3.11 under DosBox) Both Mom and Sister have Laptops Running Vista.
