I use Vista and XP equally.

XP is as comfortable as old slippers http://farm1.static.flickr.com/134/332418128_fdf2d650ca.jpg?v=0 and Vista is like wearing a velvet Smoking jacket:

I'll be on XP until I decide to build a new computer. That's the only time I change OSes.

I use XP Home and XP Pro.  :)   I set my work PC for best performance -

right-click My Computer > Properties select Advanced tab >
Performance select Settings > Performance Options select radio button - Adjust for best performance

Vista 32bit on the way since the OS now seem to become the most favored option with users.

Linux only. Currently a dual boot with Debian, and Linux Mint 7. I had Vista for a short period of time, when I bought this new computer, but alas, I accidentally erased it when I was partitioning for a dual boot. Silly me.

My PC is Vista^^

I like this because...umm....I just like it^^

I dnt get why many people still choose XP over Vista yet Vista has more features and more stable^^(thats wat i only think though^^)
Though its a memory pig, that problem is easily conquered by a RAM over 3GB^^

This is only my opinion though^^

That was my experience when dabbling with Ubuntu and XP a while back so I prefer to think Silly Ubuntu than me.
