I use XP on my main PC and a dist based off of Xandros on my netbook (eee). I used to run Linux on all my PC's but I had too much trouble whenever I wanted to play a game that wasn't easy to run.  SO I just went with XP to stop having to reboot every time I wanted to play something.

Windows XP. Going to change to windows 7 soon, though.

Counting the 4 computers in this house (my gaming rig, my laptop, my HTPC, and someone else's netbook) I run both Windows XP and Windows 7 on a regular basis, as well as Snow Leopard on my Macbook, and occasionally Ubuntu Linux (when I get the urge to tinker with it, only to realize it has some major issue on every piece of hardware I try to install it on, and wind up ditching it).
Though I will say I've got 2 full copies of 7 on the way, so it will be my primary OS very soon. Actually, since I'm now using RC releases of it on two machines, it kinda already is.

Wow, didn't expect Vista to be the leader at the moment.

Vista Home Premium 64-bit for me.  I'm looking forward to the release of W7 though.  I haven't tried it myself, but nearly unanimous praise for a MS OS?  It must be good.

Windows 7 Pro RTM thanks to MSDN.

Right now I'm running Vista.   I can get a free copy of Windows 7 when it comes out, but I need to send ASUS a copy of a proof of purchase of my laptop, and I have no idea where to get that.

XP SP3 on my main, and Win7 on a secondary hard drive.  i switch from time to time, but seeing as i had XP on the comp WAAAAAAY before i decided to install 7, XP is pretty much the OS i have everything installed on.
#124 Posted by GeekBoy (4 posts) -

Windows 7 Ultimate of course
#125 Posted by GeekBoy (4 posts) -
Well you should. I had Vista 64 Ultimate. Windows 7 Ultimate is FAR better in performance and reliability than Vista is. You won't regret it. I was really not "WOWed" by Vista as ol Bill said I would be.
#126 Posted by Wrect (322 posts) -

XP SP3 on my gaming rig.  Vista scares me.  Will see how Windows 7 pans out before upgrading.

I'm still using XP.  I had planned on sticking with it until Windows 7 dropped and, thus, avoid the hassle of Vista.  Now that Windows 7 is out, I'll switch to it when I upgrade my system again next year.
