And I don't just mean in general terms- what specific version(s) are you running?

I'm using trusty old Windows XP with Service Pack 3.

My wife is using Snow Leopard on her Mac desktop, normal Leopard on her Mac Book Pro, and I think Ubuntu on our Netbook. Oh, and she's running Windows 7 Ultimate edition using Parallels on the Mac Desktop.

As for me, I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate Edition (64-Bit) on my desktop, and also a virtual copy of Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 being hosted on my desktop. I use Windows 7 enterprise edition on the aforementioned netbook.

My work laptop uses Windows XP, with a virtual copy of Windows Server 2003.

Snow Leopard on the work laptop (and Windows 7 Pro in a VM).

Desktop at home runs OpenSuSE 11.3 with KDE (although once I find something better KDE is going away).

Server at home also runs OpenSuSE 11.3, but headless.

Wife's iMac is running Snow Leopard as well.

Wife's beater of a laptop has Linux Mint (can't remember what version, but it's at least a year old) on it.

Windows 7. And I am very glad to have it.

I never any of the Vista problems I heard of toward the beginning but my scoffing turned to melancholy towards the end and it was one of my main motivations in buying a new PC.

I still think XP was the best though.

Work PC is Win7, I forget which version.

2 of my 3 home PC's are WinXP, SP3. 3rd PC is a Win7, but that machine is a tad slow for Win7 so I'm planning on downgrading it back to WinXP.
