Windows 7 Ultimate

I went here:

We didnt need computers.

In all honestly, I am done with school, so I have no idea what they are using now

Still, downgrading the machines is a shame.
Yeah, that was the impression I got, that he was just doing math, english, history, etc on the pc. Yeah, if it's a computer class, or college courses prepping for a career in IT, it definitely needs to be upgraded to Win7.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

My school still has XP on all school computers. I know that VCU, a school I'm considering transferring to in a year or so, required Vista Home Premium Business to be used on student owned computers, depending on the field being studied, shortly after Vista come out, and a quick look shows that they now strongly recommend all computers used for school have 7 Pro. Or they do allow Macs that have Snow Leopard. I also know my old high school downgrades everything to XP. And until 2008-2009 school year, downgraded everything to 2000.

EDIT: I should also mention that my county has what they call "specialty centers", where each high school concentrates on a specific field of study. My high school was the Computer Science and IT specialty center.

Win 7 Professional 64bit

I teach a language course in an education facility for adults. The PCs there still have XP.
Maybe the PCs for the computer classes have Win7 (I suppose they do) but all the others have XP. For the average trainer who just runs a powerpoint presentation via the beamer or plays an audio file on the PC it doesn't make much difference.

And if it's a school for kids and not a kind of college for adults I guess we will be at Windows 8 or higher when the kids finish it so teaching them Win7 skills now won't help them much in 3 years' time

Windows 7 Home Premium X64

My school still uses Windows XP, which I hate. I have Windows 7 at home, and it's WAY better, in my opinion. One thing that was funny, was when our teacher gave us a project on computer, she kept calling it windows 7, and when we got to computers, it had xp on them.

I am in Houston, TX and they call them "Magnet Schools" here. Specialty Centers seems to describe them better.

XP pro

Yeah, I've been playing around with Ubuntu. I got everything to work (music, videos, etc...), but the main problem is still getting windows programs to run. Wine is pretty cool, and I got a few apps to run. If more companies would start offering their products in Windows and Linux packaged together, people wouldn't be afraid to try the Linux version.

But, if you gotta pay for both, they're gonna go with Windows...
