XP is so much more reliable right now and faster. Linux however, is the best.

On my main home pc it's XP Pro x64, at work all are either XP Home or Pro and on my laptop it's XP Home.

I've yet to have a customer that actually WANTED Vista. Every person that buys a desktop from us wants XP on it and every person that buys a laptop either grudingly takes Vista or pays more for one with XP.

XP for my gaming/normal use/want-every-program-I-have-to-work-right PC. (I use my PC for everything from video editing to some basic music making to Virtual Machine testing to.....) XP at work. Vista Ultimate for my media center / home file server-like thing.

XP pro for my gaming needs + Linux.

I was running Vista HP, loved it, but had to sell it off with other stuff to meet some immediate needs.

dual boot... vista = useless except for DX10 games

I dual boot but I don't use XP for anything anymore so I voted for Vista.

XP is basically just there as a backup in case something really important comes along and will not work in Vista. I don't even have all of my usual software installed. :o

Other than the odd compatibility issue here and there and a few small irritating aspects (like the picture import wizard), I love Vista. It works great, it runs smooth, and its stable.

Same here. And I'm yet to find a DX10-supporting title that interests me.

I have been running Vista since 30 nov 06, and I really dont see what a lot of people is complaining about, I knew sooner or later I had to change to it anyway, and with a QX6700 and GF8800 (from jan.07) everything runs smooth anyways :], its only hellgate london dx10 and crysis that can make some lag, but I tihnk thats just until they can untilize quad and extrme cpu and all bugs and spike lags gets fixed, but they still run smooth in high details and resolution.

Vista all the way. It runs great for me and lets be honest we're all gonna have to have it in a few years anyway.

I chose other, but really I mostly use Vista Ultimate x64. I do have a 64-bit install of Kubuntu on a second hard drive though. Have even messed with it for a long time though...

I've been running Vista Ultimate 64 exclusively for at least 6 months now and while it certainally has had it's fair share of problems none have been showstoppers with the 64 bit version and none of the problems have been any worse than what I dealt with in XP's infancy.

I've been using Vista for two months now full time, and have yet to acquire the urge to go back to XP. My machine functions as an entertainment center/gaming machine, and Vista handles both with ease.
