I'll probably end up dual booting between Ubuntu and W7. 

Ubuntu as my primary OS and W7 for "games that I want to play but are not supported on Linux" games.

Might dig up an old unfinished kernel I wrote long ago, finish it and make a small graphical OS.

I can see myself moving over to Win8 when I eventually upgrade my CPU/MoBo. By then there will have been plenty of threads here with feedback on how people like it. I can't imagine wanting to change from Win7 on a current setup though.
