Same here. I use Linux for everything now except gaming. Ubuntu 9.04 has everything I want except DX10
As for Vista vs. Windows 7 I personally don't see any difference performance wise. Vista has worked great for me since day 1 and now apparently so will Windows 7. If it wasn't for the fact that I'll get a couple copies free I really doubt I'd spend a couple hundred bucks to go from Vista SP2 to 7.
