Definitely Vista. It was a good OS, people just didn't give it a chance.

That's right BR, the most outspoken against Vista have never run it; I don't even try any longer to help them understand the real truth; I just let them live in their bliss.

I ran it from Beta, never liked it, the most bug ridden resource hogging OS ever, could not wait for W7.

I think you made a bit of a blanket statement.

MS even named it after the worst Dodge/Mitsubishi ever built, the Colt Vista.

It would have to be Vista for me. I will never go back to Linux and XP is just an annoyance to me.

I would use Vista x64. Once setup properly I never had problems with it in the past.
