    I have both in snapshots, but I mainly use XP because it seems Nvidia has not yet managed to produce any reasonable drivers for graphic cards. At least I think it is the driver coz scrolling in apps (browsers for example) is not a pretty sight.
    And some of my favorite apps has yet to be updated too.

    When those issues are fixed I probably will start the transition to Vista.

    I have an older computer dual booting windows me and Xubuntu. Just got a brand new dell computer for my birthday. :) It has xp media center installed for now. However, it will soon be dual booting with a linux distro. Probably pclinuxos, ubuntu, or possibly mandriva. Haven't made up my mind yet.

    Vista Ultimate. Started with an OEM Home Premium to see how it would run on my computer and then did the "Anytime Upgrade" to Ultimate.

    I use winXPproSP2 32-bit now. If I ever change the OS on this computer, it will be winXPproSP2 64-bit, but not winVISTA.

    I usually change the OS, when I buy a new computer case, which has also the right hardware to handle the new OS.

    2k on my personal tower. Though may finally go to XP Pro 64 if they ever come out with a few more FW options. Plan on going dual-boot with Ubuntu once I upgrade my primary hdd to a WD Raptor. Running XP Pro on the Wifes` tower and my lap top.

    this forum is biased!
    Vista Home Premium here,

    its working fantastic, some programs are yet to be vista compatible, but its running faster than XP (boot up is slower though), definatly less 'program not respondings', only had one on vista.

    And its running very smoothly indeed, good job microsoft.

    having never tried any of the betas, it was a big "wow" for me, that has worn off but i can still appreciated how much better it is, and how much better it runs.

    networking is a breeze with vista, XP was so-so.

    XP Professional + Windows 98SE

    I have Linux, unbuntu, and a couple other experimental OS's but not yet ready to move toward full-time usage with them just yet.

    From what i learned recently about all the issues with LongHorn, err i mean Vista :shifty: it's nothing for me to get so excited about.
