Well Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 currently on my laptop and my desktop is Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 (because SP2 refuses to install on that machine) and my new laptop will be Vista until Windows 7 comes out and I get my free upgrade with it. Other than that I have two old Windows 98 machines kicking around although both don't work, both of their hard drives have failed but they were both over 10 years old and not worth putting money into. I even recently although only for a brief time had a Sharp PC portable "lunchbox" computer, with DOS 3.0. I'll post a picture of that one below.

I have Vista Basic for now. I've been upgrading my computer some so I can run Windows 7 when it comes out. All I need know is a graphics card.

Its so much cleaner and organized than Vista. Its also not a major resource hog like Vista and runs alot better. Its just internal things that PC nerds see lol. Let alone the interface of it is just wicked.

I remember using the Windows 7 Release Candidate on a dual boot machine with Vista available as well and Windows 7 definitely looked cooler, ran slightly better and supported just as much software if not more since it has virtual XP mode available, despite the fact the Vista OS had all the factory drivers where Windows 7 relied on drivers from Windows Update, but it had a driver for everything we could throw at that computer, and not generic ones, hardware specific ones.

I'm running on Vista Home Premium (64 bit version) at the moment, but I'm about to upgrade to Windows 7.
