Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

I'm keeping it as part of a multi-boot system (see panel under my Avatar), mainly because I have paid for them and also because I occasionally still need to refer to them when answering questions over in the Vista forums. I shall be keeping them for the foreseeable future, certainly whilst MS are still providing support in the way of updates etc.

Windows 7 Professional x64

Same here Dwarf. I have one system I have paid for Vista and will probably run it for a long while. I will be using Windows 7 as my everyday system however. It's hard to go from some of the features 7 has back to Vista.

Friend: "My ntb lags...damn the preinstalled Vista.."

Vista Ultimate x64

Guys you should start burning, microwaving, incinerating or whatever you want to do with the Windows 7 instead of Vista. Why? Windows 8 is around the corner.

Btw, Seven is just a little better upgrade of Vista. It's the Vista Service Pack 3, I guess.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 RC X64

im keeping vista i think it was a brilliant OS, Very reliable and a worthy step up from XP. Gonna keep it as a dual boot with Windows Seven RTM when that's released.

Rushed? You call SIX years from the release of XP in 2001 to the release of Vista in 2007 rushed?

And don't try denying it: the one reason why Vista was in fact late was because XP and XP SP1 was being torn apart by an over abundance of security flaws and other instabilities, and Microsoft had to take many important developers off the Longhorn project in order to focus primarily on XP SP2. It's amazing how short peoples memories really are..

But back on topic, if you'll forgive the unavoidable rant.

What to do with my Vista x64 Ultimate licence? I was originally planning on building a Media Center PC for my dad, link it with my Windows 7 machine and stream the media. Get him off the old-fashioned style analog TVs that can only do one thing. But I've found a network-capable Media Player with PVR support that will cost be about half us much.

So I guess I'll probably end up saving the disc along with the rest of them, XP, 2000, ME, 95 and 3.1 - untill I need them.

But make no mistake, I went dual-boot between XP and Vista, and abandoned XP about 4 weeks later in favour of Vista. I did the same two years later with Winodws 7. I dual booted, but THREE days later I took Vista off in favour of Windows 7.

I've been using Windows 7 since the first public BETA Build 7000, I'm now on the RC Build 7100, and I'll most defintely be using Windows 7 Ultimate when it hits store shelves (maybe a month or two earlier - I work at a computer store ).

Vista is the OS that Microsoft "finally got right". Windows 7 is Vista done even better.

Vista / 7 RC 7100/Virtual XP

I've been using Vista for about 2 years now( the PC I purchased in June '07 had it installed) and I have had no major problems nor have I found anything in it that sux or any reason to bad-mouth it at all...IMO it works just fine! Don't see the reason to get rid of it....

Vista was good only for the eye not as an OS. People got into Vista just because they bought a new computer in the last 3 years and it came with Vista in it. People didn't need Vista. 50% of them changed back to XP. It is a matter of what you use the computer for. If you only play some games and surf the internet Vista is good but if you need to do some other things also and I am talking about IT, Vista was a no-go.
Who tried XP on the new computers(dual core or quad core) knows exactly which is running better. Next year everybody will forget Vista. Let's enjoy the real MS OS, Win7!
