Windows 7 Professional 64bit

I would mostly go back to Vista.

How ever i use Mac's at school and my Sister owns a Mac, they seem fun to use, so it hard to choose.

Mostly Vista, but would love to own a Mac LOL

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

XP Pro, it wouldn't cost me anything except the time taken to install it again. I never bought into Vista so I would have to go out and purchase it to use it. That ain't gonna happen.

Vista x64 dual-booting with my Red Hat distro. I'm gonna echo what many people have already said - Vista just needed enough resources to run; then it was fine. What I most liked was the vastly improved stability over XP.

And if anyone asks if I would ever go back to XP, the answer is 'never, I'd get a Mac first'.

Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)

I voted for Vista because it is the system I would use most.

There needed to be multiple options. I would revert each system back to the OS it had on it before upgrading.

Vista for my desktop and XP for my netbook.

Windows 7 Ultimate X64 SP1

Ubuntu, while there is nothing particularly "wrong" with Vista, if i ha ddiscovered ubuntu before windows 7, then id probably have gone with it, as it is i tried it after i installed 7, and was just like "nah, 7's aweseome"
