Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1

I'm dual booting Windows 7 and Server 2012 and in terms of ease of use, Windows 7 wins hands down. Less mouse clicks to get to shutdown the PC or lauch apps No annoying charms bar and recent metro apps popup (especially when closing a maximized window or pressing the back button on the browser). Having 2 IEs is redundant IMO and there is no aero transparency. The thing I like about Windows 8/Server 2012 is less RAM usage, faster operations and higher benchmark scores.

Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit

This is a faulty poll (as most are) because only one choice is allowed. Not everyone has only one machine. I have two: a notebook running Win7 and a desktop running XP. The desktop isn't able to run all of Win7's features, such as Aero so it will have to be replaced. Being the cheap bi...broad I am, I didn't want to replace the machine any sooner than I had to but, with XP's demise looming April, 2014, I'll have to replace it soon.

I voted to keep Win7 on the notebook but I will also replace XP with Win7 (I'm watching for a sale so I can buy a couple of retail copies).

Windows 10 64 bit

I checked stay with Windows 7, which is what I will do with my Recording System PC. However, I will install Win 8 on my "test" PC, I do part-time PC support and I know at least 1 of my clients that will be upgrading.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP 1

No plans to update here. I stayed with XP until 7 came along and will do the same with 7 until a "decent" replacement for it comes along.
