    XP on my netbook, Vista on my main desktop. I was disappointed with W7 to such an extent that I reformatted my hard drive and installed Vista again. Once I get my 64GB ssd for my netbook, Vista is going on there as well.

    Until directX10 stops being a running joke (I actually noticed a game that absolutely required it was released the other day) I am sticking with a highly customised version of XP pro (32bit SP2 although updated with everything SP3 has without the SP3). Keep that vista nonsense away from me and my machines.

    I suspect by the time that it happens though I will move to something else (50/50 between reactOS and whatever linux/similar distro forgets patents and the GPL or other software licenses exist to give me a nicely tuned system out of the box or as close to it*), failing that I will be grabbing windows server.

    *this means I will probably have to make it or pervert something else but I do not mind that.

    XP, then 7 when it's released. Skip Vista.

    I have my laptop set up to dual-boot/virtualize Vista as necessary. I also virtualize Windows 7.

    On very rare occasions, I'm forced to use my family computer with Windows XP. I don't have a single computer that has 2000 or older.

    Vista.

    Hater don't reply. No one gives a damn about your hate for vista.

    it does what I want it to do and does it fast and with no hassle.

    Thats if you turn UAC off [​IMG]

    EDIT: your poll is confusing. What if you use vista without any dual boot. You'd pick No dualboot in the Windows 7 and/or Vista section but you have to pick another option in the other parts which means you are picking all three when you really just use one

    Windows XP Professional SP3+French MUI on my desktop, Ubuntu on my notebook.
    If I get a netbook, it would also be Ubuntu as the OS of choice.

    XP Home 32-Bit on my internet computer (the one I'm on now), Vista Home Premium 64-Bit on my old gaming computer and I'm getting Vista Unlimited 64-Bit and duel booting with Windows 7 64-Bit on my soon-to-be gaming computer.

    All of them are legal unlike SOME people here!
